I researched and developed the idea and did some experiments to create a recipe and design that could work.

To make the bars I hand created a bespoke mould at my studio to create the shape of the bar.  This created a chocolate shell that could then be filled and sealed.

Chocolate portraits

I was commissioned to make 4 chocolate portraits as prizes for the show, these had a thick chocolate slab canvas, a chocolate frame dusted with edible gold colour and a portrait hand drawn with dark chocolate and white chocolate. The chocolate portraits were of Nish Kumar, Katherine Parkinson, Richard Ayoade and Helen Bauer.
