My favourite famous person wisely wrote on the train back to London that “it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live”. She also reminded us that a nighttime stroll can remedy any lack of ideas.
Here’s the chocolate showpiece I was working on. I thought that I needed one for my portfolio, and it was good practice. They are a great deal of work when you have limited space and resources. Tempering 5kg of chocolate is no easy task. However the end result is always very rewarding. Some people might wonder what the point of doing a showpiece is, and there really doesn’t have to be a point. Everyone needs a medium to express themselves creatively, but if you were to sell it, it would most likely be to a bride and groom.
