For my purposes I have mastered the art of packaging chocolate bars, but search as I might I cannot find an eGullet thread or any information on packaging chocolate eggs. I ask as I have an egg mold in transit. Assuming I can successfully fabricate an egg, how can I wrap or package it? All I can think of is cellophane.
I've seen pictures so I know some of you are making eggs. Do not deny it. When I was little and still celebrated holidays the neighborhood candy establishment sold eggs in windowed cardboard boxes with cellophane grass*. That was the early 1950's. Is this still the state of the art?
*cellophane grass tastes terrible. And the ubiquitous coconut cream filling not much better.
i am moving into our lab next week so excited!!!! I have one million questions but the ones popping up in my head are
1) If I have 6 moulded bonbon recipes to airbrush, fill and cover and 6 bars recipes to make for our production,how do you organise production? Can someone give me an example of their weekly plan am and pm plan just to get an idea? I have a Selmi 😀.
2) how many bonbons and bars should I produce just before we launch? I have my budgets and projections but you know those first weeks God knows how you will do! Should I be freezing from the beginning? And what is the ideal packaging way to freeze bonbons?
Thank you so appreciate it!
