Source of Countertop Confectionary Display Case

6 posts in this topic

Anyone know where to find a nice acrylic display case for chocolates, doesn't need refridgeration, and should sit on a counter top.

Even better would be a Canadian source of this.

Also wanted are the trays that chocolates are displayed on in a case such as this.

Kerry- I've ordered some stuff from Hubert. I think their Canadian offices are in Ontario. I don't have the time to really look through their site now, but here are a few examples of what they have:

I like these ones more

I'm sure I've seen pictures in their brochures with chocolate displays (maybe :rolleyes: ).

Thank you both. Pam, I think that last one is going to be just what is required.

Kerry, as another option...i've seen at most chocolate shops...the standard display is just using acrylic squares with chocolate on top. they then often stack these one on top of the other. there are a lot of places that make acrylic stands, simple bent acrylic rectangles that you can use like risers. it would be pretty inexpensive to use these items.

hey, are you finally going to sell some stuff?

Actually they are for my friend Mari who has Coco Chocolates. A really neat coffee shop in Toronto wants to sell her chocolates.

I love the acrylic square idea, but they want to keep peoples hands off these ones apparently.

I'll just stick to trying to sell my DVD's and classes. Although some holidays I make enough chocolate so that I can walk into the clinic or hospital with a box full and sell it as I going along. Helps support my chocolate habit.

      Looking for your opinions and experiences... I am planning to put some wire shelving in my chocolate & confections kitchen. The kitchen has a concrete floor. This shelving will hold ingredients, colored cocoa butters, and packaging. Wondering if I should get casters for this shelving... what are your thoughts on this oh so important question?  ;-)

      I'd like to do a smores flavor and a few other uses of marshmallows in some molded chocolates.  Can anyone give me some guidance on preparing marshmallows so that I can pipie them into the molds?  I see a problem similar to the PDFs....by the time they are cool enough to put in the chocolate shells, they are too firm to pipe.   Anyone have any tips, pointers, suggestions, etc.?

      Ideas on why enrobed marshmallows stored at room temp (68 deg F) have recrystallized sugar particles while the same batch of enrobed marshmallow stored airtight in a cooler (40 deg F) do not?
       
      I'm all ears!
       
      Thanks,

      Do you ever end up with ganache that reminds you of extra-heavy mayo?  I was winging it today, testing batches that set up ok but grainy, then weirldy flexible. The 60% i usually use is 39% cocoa butter, but in this batch I used 72%, which is 45% fat.  I also made some other changes but was trying to keep a similar ratio of liquid to chocolate.  The 72% ganache is far thicker than the 60% ever is - it probably needs more cream or a splash of booze, right?  Arg, I should know this!
       
      I got annoyed and left the slab out to do whatever it will overnight - cross your fingers that it is either use-able or save-able tomorrow!

      Hey all, I got a question for you who make pate de fruit on a regular basis. I know it's quite simple to pour the finished pate de fruit into a frame, but does anyone here use a confectionery funnel to deposit them into forms? I'm asking because in Notters 'Art of the Chocolatier' it seems his primary way of making the jellies is to deposit the mixture into a flexipan, and his alternate method is to pour it into a frame. I'm wondering simply if anyone does/has done this before. The jellies seem to set quite quickly, and I'm not sure if you just need to be super fast with this or not. I want to try it, but shy away (I need to get appropriate forms first) because I keep feeling like I'll end up with half the mixture deposited and the other half solidified in the funnel. I assume warming the stainless funnel will aid the process, but I also assume that you have one attempt at this, and you cant rewarm the mixture as you would with fondant or gummies. Anyways, just a question I wanted to put out there. Thanks!
