  1. The first sentence says that you don't temper then the second sentence says you do 😛
  2. when I was starting up (I'm not anywhere near running a small business), renting kitchen space to prepare in was cost prohibitive compared to registering my own kitchen as a food safe area. My council also required me to register my kitchen regardless if I was making product there or not if I was storing the product in my house, so it was just register the kitchen in the end, because storing the product elsewhere was also cost prohibitive!
  3. I would be interested in hearing that story! (if you can be bothered typing it )
  4. I just have a generic HVLP gun which has a dial, twiddle the dial and go from fine spray to spatter, no changing PSI: https://www.instagram.com/p/B-2AnEKj4nC/
  5. I disagree (respectfully) - you can see some chocolate that's over the gold leaf, so it's been added to the mould prior to the shell being created.
  6. 100% made with bubbles somehow, I have no idea how...
  7. Don't forget about moving something that weighs 100lb 😂 Unless you're constructing on the balcony!
  8. I made a filling with 2:1 ratio white chocolate:cream last weekend and it was juuuuuust firm enough after some time cooling in the fridge. Next time I'll go 2.5:1
  9. Or pay AU$12.95 for savour online one month and see how Kirsten makes that design 😂
  10. not much from me this year, just eggs for kids as we weren't allowed to see the family
  11. why can't places use recipes by weight, your US cups are different to ours 😭
  12. No. I find my sourdough dough generally doesn't last more than 3 days in the fridge before the gluten starts getting degraded and you end up with rubbery bricks. But sourdough is more enzymatically active than commercial yeast (in my anecdotal experience) so YMMV.
  13. packaging companies here market boxes with inserts specifically as chocolate boxes, for example: https://www.packqueen.com.au/6chocolateboxes I imagine the options outside of Australia are probably endless! I'm not sure that a box is cheaper than a bag tbh! But if you're saving on labour expenses, then it might be worth it. Those boxes come flat-packed so assembly is required but I think I can probably fold a six pack box faster than someone can wrap 6 truffles...
  14. if you have a small airbrush that has very little overspray, or you mask the rest of the mold that isn't covered by stencil with some plastic wrap or something, I don't see why spraying it before hand would be a problem, so long as you're using an opaque cocoa butter that will show up once you've put chocolate in the mold.
