Hi all my lovely GG friends!  Hope you're all having a lovely week so far!  

 

Because it's St Valentine's Day this week, I've been making more chocolates & sculpting hearts from my homemade modelling chocolate (I'm currently making the dark ones, but they're not ready yet).  Each one is sculpted from a piece of modelling chocolate & the tiny one is brushed in edible gold, so it's sparkly & shimmering (I wasn't sure this would work, but I'm pleased with the results).  The shape is rounded on both sides, not flat - a bit like a heart-shaped balloon.  There are moulds you can buy, but I prefer to make them this way as they are all individual & unique, just like the person receiving them. 

 

Anyway, before I get all warm & fuzzy, here are a few pictures to brighten your day!  My kitchen smells gorgeous now (shame I can't bottle that scent - eau de chocolat anyone?).  

 

Right, back to the dark side (of chocolate).  Have a fabulous day everyone! Smiley Wink x

Thank you @themzbiker!  Just making the dark ones now - here's a couple of pics so far (they need decorating once they've set). Smiley Happy

Thank you @vickyjakesmum! The dark ones were a bit more difficult, because they melt faster Smiley Happy
