I love how you can turn chocolate into anything, in fact I find it easier to use than fondant including turning chocolate into veggies!
This house was a special request for a local primary school, to raise end of year funds. I decided that everyone does a gingerbread house, but not chocolate. So I decided to go for a chocoholics dream 🙂
The walls are chocolate with rice krispies to give the structure strength. I made 2 sheets. I then carefully cut out the template that I had drawn up.
Putting together was a simple affair, using melted chocolate as a glue.
After that it was just a matter of making it look like a house. With chocolate windows, flowers, veggie patch, and adding a lot of lollies!!!
The next morning I decided that we needed chocolate candy cane looking window frames, and I was missing a mother hen and her chicks.
There is no cake inside, this was a hollow structure, it still weighed quiet a bit. I must admit I pulled a shoulder muscle carrying it up the hill to the school. Who needs the gym when cakes are my weights.
I also made a little chocolate Christmas scene for my daughters teacher for a small gift.
Lastly – I’ve had a topsy turvy 2012, one that I would not wish to repeat, so I am looking forward to a new year, and a fresh start. And with that I would like to wish all that view my little blog a wonderful 2013.
Happy New Year to you all and to all a goodnight xxx
