Quite pleased with these  - shells are a blend of valrhona strawberry & zephyr, sprayed red & purple.  Filled w/ white chocolate passion fruit ganache.

First go at some enrobed truffles. It was fun! These are kirsch dark chocolate ganache in a dark chocolate shell and rolled in pistachios. I really like the flavor combo of cherry/pistachio.

Beautiful. I especially admire the perfect stripe in the second photo--very difficult to do in a tall dome like that.

I love the expression "working a treat."  Out of context, I would have no idea what it meant.

 

I had something similar happen with my Grex. I had reached the point where I had to heat it every few minutes to get it flowing. I contacted Grex tech support (the most responsive tech people I have ever encountered), and they offered to clean it free of charge (I paid just the shipping). They knew it was for cocoa butter and so used nothing poisonous. When it came back, I was, of course, skeptical. But that was 1 1/2 years ago, and it has behaved ever since. Considering how small an airbrush needle is, it's a wonder, I suppose, why this doesn't happen all the time, given that I use a lot of cocoa butters with metallic bits (I try not to think of what those bits actually are). Someday I really need to learn how to clean the airbrush myself, but when I watch the videos on taking it apart, I am compelled to reach for the nearest bottle of gin.

They don't have that super high gloss that a lot of submissions to this thread have because I use a custom 40-shore silicone mould instead of polycarb (due to the shape of the racing helmet), but here are some that are straight from the Racing Chocs showroom.

      Hi there, I’m looking for some interesting flavours for truffles. Any combination of filling and coating ideas? For lemon, dark ganache, orange and caramel example. 
      I also realised that when deciding to use ready made truffle shells filling needs to have a creamy texture. Any advice on this?

      Hello! 
       
      I am doing some spring cleaning and am selling some of my used polycarbonate molds. I've attached pictures and dimensions below.  The mold prices do not include shipping fee. I will ship these via USPS priority mail. 
       
      For estimation purposes only, 4 - 5 molds can fit in a medium box and it costs $15.05 to ship. Please let me know if you have any questions.  
       
      Thank you. 
      Charlotte W.

      I am wishing to purchase some black cocao butter, but it is scarcer than hobby-horse sh*te here in the UK. I do have some cocao butter, and some black fat-soluble powder. Tips and tricks for the making of black cocao butter at home would be most welcome...

      Beautiful day chocolate friends.
       
      I'm brand new here on the forum. Almost two years ago, I started making pralines in the Czech Republic. There are not many manufacturers and not at all those who work by hand. I have a big problem with cleaning the molds. I like to work cleanly, so I absolutely clean and polish alcohol before each batch of molds. I use my little helper for this - an accumulation screwdriver with an extension, which I made from a wine cork - it works perfectly. I apply clean make-up tampons and possibly alcohol to it.

      But now I have a lot of molds and manual cleaning is crazy. I bought an older dishwasher in a restaurant and I can't find a product (soap, detergent) that would well remove the remnants of chocolate from the sides of the molds and at the same time, of course, would not destroy the molds? Does anyone have any type or advice for any other cleaning machine, please?
       
      I bought a special product "Brillform", which is intended for rinsing already washed molds - it should ensure shine without polishing each tube, but first I have to get the chocolate away.
       
       Here is a link to my website and instagram, you can look at my work and I will be very happy and grateful for any advice and warnings on what I could improve, because there is no professional in the Czech Republic focused on pralines, so there is no one to learn from I teach myself by rehearsing and from great books, videos and watching the world's chocolatiers.
       
      Thank you again
