Chocolate Birds




Instead of Easter eggs, this year Andrew has decided to make chocolate Easter birds......... He had a mould leftover from casting a bird sculpture and thought it would be something fun & different to give as gifts.......

So the kitchen was taken over, silicon moulds were sterilised and loads of chocolate was bought, melted, tasted - for quality control you understand! - and casting began.....
The chocolate was painted in with one of my new paint brushes! these I had been bought to re-paint the window frames.........


The chocolate was left to dry between coats.....


And when a good few layers had been applied......the bird was left to dry completely and then popped out of the mould.

I think he's planning to sandwich halves together and fill them with eggs.......yummy I'm looking forward to receiving mine!




Happy Easter Monday
