C is for Chocolate Cage

by Lillian Csernica on April 3, 2014


Here is an example of the confectioner’s art suitable for any romantic occasion, especially Valentine’s Day:

Cage-coeur & gingembre The ultimate in chic, the “cage-coeur” box is made with a 70% Guarana chocolate! Inside, find little red passion hearts, composed of a raspberry-ginger ganache and a piece of candied ginger. A natural association, since tastes match perfectly. For connoisseurs.

If chocolate alone isn’t enough to sate your desires, consider this amazing display.  Yes, folks, somebody out there in Fashion Land was crazy enough to create this:

Actress Nubia Esteban wears a chocolate outfit inside a chocolate cage at Salon du Chocolat 2010.

If you could make a chocolate cage, who or what would you keep inside it?  White, milk, semisweet, or dark?  Nuts?  No nuts?  Fruit or flowers, perhaps?  Indulge that imagination!

  1. Dark chocolate (70%, don’t want to be too extreme!) and coconut. Hmmm. Like an almond joy bar, but without the additives…I’d try to leave out the sugar and use just honey…can you tell I have issues with sugar???


  2. Milk chocolate with almonds. As for who I would keep in there? I’m not telling. 😉


  3. That’s a cage I wouldn’t mind being trapped in… although I wouldn’t be trapped for long. 😉

  4. To be honest, I’m staring at that chocolate cage and imagining Hansel being stuck there by the witch in her candy cottage…except it’d have to be strong (or magic?) chocolate if he couldn’t break it or eat through it!


  5. My chocolate cage would be made from non-dairy chocolate, and have anything with peanut butter inside. A slew of peanuts by themselves would be awesome too.


  6. Oh my goodness!
    I’d enjoy eating my way out, especially if it were dark chocolate. Maybe with almonds for more structural strength.
