Chocolate Lover

Of course, I ended up mixing far too much chocolate color for the chocolate chip cookies, but I sort of meant to, since I had in mind to make a chocolate bar!  I used this tutorial as a starting place for my chocolate bars:

I used a metal roll-y texturizer for the ‘writing’ indents, but other than that, I pretty much used this tutorial word-for-word!


I ate a molten chocolate lava cake for dessert the other night, and having delicious chocolate on the brain, I decided I would try to make one!  I think they ended up a touch too small, and a touch on the under-textured side; and the liquid chocolate isn’t quite shiny enough for my taste; but all in all, I’m pretty proud of them!

I did pretty much the same thing as the doughnuts, only rolling them out slightly thicker before forming the hole, and making indents for the chocolate ‘lava’ overflow.


As I was making the little chocolate lava cakes, I decided on the spur of the moment to make a chocolate bundt cake, since I did have so much of the chocolate color!  I mostly just messed around with a ball of clay until it was sort of the right shape, then worked a hole using a ball tool.  I used a needle tool to score the bundt lines, and realized all too late that I should have made the impressions more dramatic, and the sections more rounded.  All well, live and learn, right?  (I think the moral of my last few posts is “Texture More”!)
