Issues Decorating Moulds with White Chocolate

Hi Everyone,I have just started creating moulded shoes and was using white chocolate to decorate them (with dots). So I put the dots on the mould and let it set.

Has Anyone Used This Machine Before?

Hey everyone. I'm looking to purchase a bigger tempering machine as I am moving from selling at home to selling in a shop.

"I bought mine off ebay from Sarah's Sweet Fountains back in 2007. I'm sure she's probably still on there selling them. It worked out well for me because I live in Canada and the duty and shipping from other places were too high."

"Dark is the way to go, but be forewarned that there is milk in most dark chocolate. so you need to decide to whom you wish to target as customers and then make a decision which chocolate(s) you will use in the business."

Chocolate Trends

Hi Everyone,I am currently writing a business plan for a chocolate shop I plan to open this coming April. I'm working on my marketing section and am having some trouble finding info on chocolate trends. I'm looking to find some good articles or sources of reliable info that can help me determine trends in the chocolate industry. I'm in Canada, so something related to the country - or even North America - would be really helpful.Thanks!EvelynSee More
