Apologies for the delay in posting my entry for this letter. Russian Easter is a lot of work and a lot of fun. Somewhere along the line I came down with some kind of illness which kept me in bed today. Nevertheless, I bring you today’s chocolate wonder:
From nowimhungry.com, “Jean-Phillipe Maury’s Dragon Sculpture in Chocolate. The tree, dragon and large flowers are dark, white and light chocolate. The pearls and small flowers are sugar, and lanterns are pulled fondant.”
Last but far from least, a marvelous Chinese Dragon from the Highland Bakery. No, strictly speaking it’s not a sea dragon, but it’s just so fabulous I had to include it here:
From the Highland Bakery Blog: “Chinese Dragon head, made by Karen out of fondant and modeling chocolate. The bride used to work at Highland Bakery and instead of a traditional tiered cake, she made little individual cakes that snaked back behind the dragon to mimic the shape of its body. ”
What’s your favorite breed of dragon? How would you like to see it rendered in chocolate?
