"The ice may be cooling the chocolate too fast. You should cool the chocolate no cooler than 55F."

how could we serve our chocolate shine?

hi joe, continuing from your previous reply actually yes I don't use refrigerator to temper it, because I don't have that. so I change it with chopping the ice into the breaking ice then I put all the ice into a plastic box, I make it sure if the surface is flat, then I put the chocolate mold onto it. cover the box with a flat board so the temperature only inside, and I wait till the chocolate temper. that's how I temper it. how is joe, is it okay to temper the chocolate? ^_^.

Hi The'a,
Thanks for being so nice and kind to me.

I started making chocolates in September time 2009 while I was on a online chocolate-making course. But I got hooked afterwards. Now I almost try a new receipt each day after a day's intensive coding.

Last night I tried a curry flavour and I got the receipt from a book. However the result was not great because it tasted too sweet with white chocolates used as main ingredients of ganache. Those white shell and pink centre ones as you mentioned are raspberry chocolates and they tasted wonderful. I made the raspberry ganache with fresh frozen raspberries from supermarket. Thanks for your nice comments.

I have changed my profile photo so don't be scared when you see it. It was my latest work and they were made on 2nd Jan, few day's ago. It was my first time experience with transfer sheets. My English is not so good so please take my apology in advance.

The'a -- if you have specific questions about how to do something I would recommend that you create a discussion forum for it. There are many very good bakers who are members of TheChocolateLife who will be happy to answer your question. That's one of the reasons I started TheChocolateLife, so that other people could help me out answering questions. Go to the Forums page, click on "Add" and then select the category, "Tricks, Tips, and Techniques."
