Chocolate Fondant

Hello Spring!

The first quarter has been very busy and productive so far. We fulfilled our first major order (the creation of a dessert table for a wedding). The wedding booking was a great learning experience and I was able to develop a lot of skills along the way (checkout my Instagram for pictures). There are many exciting times ahead with more clients order to be fulfilled into the summer.

Here is a quick recipe I came up with 2 weeks ago whilst entertaining family. It is very easy but delicate.

Lessons Learned:

  • Take timings seriously – If you go over the 11min mark, you won’t get the sauce flowing out and it will be over cooked.
