Chocolate Shops & Patisseries around Kansas City?

Dave - was just going back through the Heartland Gathering in KC to see if I could find that out - and discovered that Christopher Elbow is there!!!!! How could I have gone there and not visited Christopher Elbow. Perhaps it was because I discovered Manifesto. I'll be giving you money - you'll be bringing me chocolates! And picking Christopher's brain on his decorating techniques and...

Christopher Elbow for sure....and DO pick up a tin (or a case) of his drinking chocolate as well. The Spiced Venezuelan is our favorite, but you can't go wrong with anything in the shop. Oh yeah...his ice cream...unreal...

If you happen to make it to the Downtown/River Market area, Bloom Baking Co. has great stuff...can't find a website for them, but they are on Facebook. For breads, Fervere is mighty awesome...

Those are the major players that come to mind right now, but definitely feel free to reach out via PM or email if you have any specific questions as far as edibles of any kind while you're in town!

You didn't go to Christopher Elbow because you were busy preparing for the Saturday dinner, but Marmish and I went! And my mother, but she stayed in the car.

I really liked the chocolates I bought there (only 4 or 8, can't remember now). His salted caramel is one of my all-time favourites.

eta--not chocolate or a patisserie, but I really liked Foo's Fabulous Frozen Custard. I went twice. Or maybe three times.

      Hello friends,
       
      We recently got our selmi plus ex and have had a handful of successful runs. So far mostly with our enrobing line. 
       
      Theres been 2 occasions now that I have noticed when tempering the machine is cooling past the target temp. When it does this it goes down into the 28c range and the screw pump has to shut off due to the temp and viscosity. 
       
      I also noticed the manual is pretty light on operational procedures. 
       
      The 2 things I can think of that might be causing this other then an equipment error is 
      the chocolate used is to thick or there is a build up of chocolate around the temperature probe near the faucet. 
       
      Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers
      Mary - Rookie
