My New Toy

I mentioned I just bought a new toy after the previous chocolate class. Finally I have some time tonight to try it out!

Caramelized Hazelnuts on my new marble slab!

I was also practicing my chocolate pre-crystalization skill at home again. The chocolate is setting but something is still not right. I couldn't realise this until my photographer took some really close up shots with his super lens. This calls for more practice!


  1. Your hazelnuts look delish! I'm not seeing the bloom on your chocolate. What's wrong with it?

  2. Hi Stephanie, although the chocolate has the shine of tempered chocolate, after it has been hardened completely there are miniscue white bloom on them. They are not visible unless you get really close and look for them. There is room for improvement!

  3. I shot the chocolate, and then zoomed in to something like 300x crop and Cherry saw the bloom.

    You can't see it on inspection. It's not even really visible when you pick it up and eat it. But it is there when you start pixel peeping.
