Greetings & White Chocolate Lithophanes (Greyscale white chocolate photographs)

Hi Everyone,

I am a chocolate newbie but find chocolate production and chocolate mold making a creative interest that is rewarding when your idea comes to fruition especially if it puts a smile on someone's face and makes them feel good eating the chocolate. 

With some trial & error I found some luck making white chocolate lithophanes that look stunning.  If anyone is interested, I would be happy to collaborate in some fashion.  My site is and I have presented at the Miami Fine Food, Beverage & Chocolate Show held last March.  

I am in the Miami area and will travel as a consultant to get you started doing this.  My problem was tempering the white chocolate as I was getting inconsistent results even with a tempering machine ;-( 

Attached is a white chocolate lithophane of a jaguar (the darkness and lightness is determined by the chocolate thickness).  All lithophanes rely on the material's translucent properties which white chocolate possesses.  

I look forward to hearing from you more experienced chocolatiers and would smile if I could make chocolate my livelihood.  

Let's network somehow.

Hi Adrienne,

Thanks for thinking it is cool!  Yes, I make it with really tasty white chocolate about 34% cocoa butter.  What do you mean by you don't know if this end too well?
