Cameos and Chocolates

Cameo's - so feminine, so timeless , so elegant and when made of chocolate- so, so sweet! We are starting to plan a few parties for our Romancing the Home customers and I saw this article in Country Living about chocolate cameos. So I ordered the molds and spent yesterday creating these lovely ladies. I am not sure what their end use will be - maybe on a cupcake? The larger ones are actual chocolate boxes and would be divine containers for a raspberry mousse with fresh raspberries. The faces are so translucent and it's hard to tell the difference between the real cameos and the chocolate ones. While time consuming to paint the faces, the results were worth the 2 hours I spent making them. They would be perfect for Valentine's or Mother's Day. Pink and chocolate - a match made in heaven!
