I recently hosted a private masterclass for 2 lovely ladies. For one of the attendees, Margaret, the chocolate masterclass was a gift from her sister as a thank you for coming and looking after her daughter so that she could attend a massage course in Thailand (Wow how envious was I!).
The other attendee Marilyn was a friend.
During the masterclass we talked chocolate, had a giggle and the ladies made oodles of Champagne Truffles and Raspberry Ganache.
After a great morning Marilyn and Margaret took home their bags and boxes of chocolates.
Well… fast forward about a week after the workshop and I received an email from Marilyn saying she really had enjoyed making the chocolates and she would love to try to make the chocolates at home, and could she buy one of our Budding Chocolatiers gift sets. The idea behind the gift set is that it includes the key items needed to make professional moulded chocolates at home.
Marilyn wasted no time in making her chocolates. I was so over the moon to receive a lovely email from her saying she had had a great time making the chocolates in her own kitchen. She had tried using different flavours and I’ve got to say the results looked amazing!
I think Marilyn did a great job and I’m sure the lucky recipient (the chocolates were being given as a Father’s Day gift) was incredibly impressed!
