Easter chocolates 2020

Recommended Posts

I didn’t see a thread for this year so decided to start one. I had a disastrous round of bunnies, followed by the first eggs of the Season. Have finally cleaned all of my bunny moulds ready for another go shortly. I’d love to see what everyone is doing with their eggs/bunnies.

Funny - I  do not associate chocolate with Valentines Day but it is the Easter thing to me. Carry on! I am merely a consumer and gaping viewer.

But what did you think "lived" in all  those millions of red, heart-shaped boxes?

Oh I know - just not a passion/memory for me. What is Kerry's avatar - a bunny mold?  And further do not get me started on red roses - ick I suppose = need a Hallmark intervention

I really like the gold splatter on the turquoise egg. What did you use for the gold?

Those look very nice.  I like the texture on the egg. 
 

Looks like those Bunnies are going to get a new life as something else!

Yes those bunnies are going to be turned into new bunnies..good bunnies with shiny, perfect shells - at least that’s the plan 😊

The intention is larger 4" eggs filled with loose truffles, smaller 2" eggs with various caramels, small solid bunnies with almond or strawberry, and a few plain big bunnies for purists.  We'll see what actually happens!

 

testing today ...

Playing around with some egg designs.  TBD which ones make the cut.  Also waiting on a new order of cocoa butter colors so there will be more testing soon!

So much art on one page... and all I've got on deck so far is the f'ing bunnies (not a commentary on bunnies, that's what they actually are... see below :D ) I do every year. Better get my brain in gear, I suppose.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Really nice and personal!

Counting from the top left, my vote as best choices goes to numbers 2, 4 and 6.

Yeah, it is. I had no choice, had to have it. I keep avoiding buying holiday specific molds just because of the once-a-year usage factor but I know someday I'm going to have break on that.

I hear ya. My rule on holiday moulds is ....only if i can get ‘em cheap!  I got incredibly lucky last year and scored 8 sets of “World’s Best” magnetic Bunny moulds for $200 total - i almost cried with joy 😁😁 Those things are $100 each from Tomric.

I picked up these Easter transfers, I think the bunnies are cute. 

These are strawberry creme fraiche, but I think they need a thicker mold. The dark chocolate overwhelms the filing. So, maybe something else for this particular shape. Or, try milk chocolate for the shell.
