Final Project: Chocolate Egg Sculptures
Monday, January 23, 2012

For 3 days, we worked on our final chocolate egg sculptures. These felt like the longest 3 days out of our entire program. We had double classes so we were at school for 12 hours. And I also had the unlucky job of dish duty that week. Let me tell you it is the worst week to have to do the dishes!

At the end of it, I wasn’t very happy with my final chocolate sculpture. My first mistake- I didn’t plan. Although we had our sketch from art class, we never thought about whether it was realistic or how we were going to execute it. I ended up changing my design and re-making parts of it many times. But after this experience, I realized I want to practice working chocolate even more than ever.

Since I watched the World Chocolate Master competition back in October, I’ve been secretly aspiring to be that good one day. You’ll see I’ve still got a lot of work ahead of me. Anyways, here they are.

My final chocolate egg sculpture. It's a golden egg with a dragon protecting a castle. I'm not sure what the white sticks sticking out should be. They were supposed to be flames. The egg is obviously placed in the wrong orientation because you can see where the 2 halves were joined. And I must have spent a good 2 hours glueing (with chocolate) each scale onto the dragon body (made of modelling chocolate).

Here's YK's intellectual turtle, very cute.

IL's upside down bunny on a tree trunk. I love the detailing of the tree trunk, it's made with modeling chocolate (something like a tootsie roll).

    Emily! This is absolutely incredible! I would love to see the results of something you would call satisfactory, because your unplanned work already has my mind blown. Thank you so much for sharing!
