Chocolte sculpture business!

So I'm planning on starting a business with specific emphasis on chocolate sculptures. Does anyone have any advice to share? I"m just a bit worried that the market won't bare such an idea and I can't seem to find enough information other then people who do it on the side or in addition to their other chocolate products.Thanks!See More
