Our chocolate wedding dress had a nice little outing during Chocolate Week as part of a chocolate sculpture exhibition at Chocolate Unwrapped.
It’s been causing quite a stir, so here’s a closer look at how we made it.
Chantal Coady and Ian Stuart of Ian Stuart Brides had been talking about creating a chocolate wedding dress for years, and Chocolate Week 2008 seemed the perfect opportunity to combine Ian’s distinctive style and Rococo’s creative approach to chocolate.
The dress started with underskirts and one of Ian’s bodices dipped in chocolate. Laurent, our chocolatier, made panels of intricate white chocolate curls and truffles to decorate the bodice. More panels were layered up on netting to cover the skirt.
Attaching the panels.
The hat was topped with a white chocolate feather and ivory truffles.
And even the shoe decorations were edible!
