Pipe the two colors of chocolate first then smush it down?  Or dip into and stamp with the chocolate?

Jin dipped the leaf stamp into a container with two colors of chocolate & then stamped.

Hi All - a little late posting, but here are a few snaps from the LV trip.  Phone space issues meant I couldn't take all the pics I wanted to (until I figured out that deleting apps lets you take more). :D

 

Jean-Philippe Patisserie chocolate clamshell waterfall:

Payard at Ceasars Palace:

Jin showing us some cool techniques to make decor:

Jin's chocolate cigarettes - the thinnest I've ever seen.  Such great technique!

Obligatory food shot of vegetarian red curry from Lotus of Siam:

Melissa Coppel's demo yielded this beauty (as others have also mentioned, her Atelier is the cleanest, neatest, and most well-organized workspace I've ever seen):

Jean-Marie Auboine's nougat all wrapped up:

I don't have any pics from the meal at Bouchon (which was amazing), but here's the Chili Relleno at Mesa Grill - very yummy:

High Roller Wheel at the Linq hotel:

View from the pod, a very smooth ride:

This was my first time attending and it was a great trip!  Such a friendly and talented group of folks, new techniques to learn, and new chocolatey friends made for a really fun experience.  Hope to see you all next year! :smile:
