Fairfax Chocolate Festival


I always have a blast at the Fairfax Chocolate Lover’s Festival. Rooms of chocolate tastings and confections, demos, exhibitions, a cake room, and fun sugared-up people. This was my first year to participate, but I knew it would be a great event.

Here is my chocolate cake for the cake and chocolate display room. Chocolate is star here with a milk  chocolate collar, highlighted with pink cocoa butter. Flowers formed from chocolate are imprinted for texture and formed into fantasy shapes. A  vanilla buttercream and chocolate curls top the moist and delicious chocolate decadence.

I spent the day watching demos, testing truffles, and chatting with folks about the NCACS cake show on March 26th and 27th. It was a great day! When I returned to the cake gallery after lunch it got even better. On the table were these two surprises!

Hooray! They liked it. It was a fabulous day out. I learned a ton about chocolate, met a bunch of cool people, took in the sights in downtown Fairfax, and generally enjoyed a sugar-fueled good time. Thanks Fairfax!!
