I LOVE my job!  Sometimes I walk into the shop, pause for a moment, breathe deep and say a prayer of gratefulness that God has blessed me with so much joy in my work.  I get to imagine beautiful things every day, and then create them with my own hands, and then share them with people all over the world!  It doesn’t get any better than this!  Sometimes my ideas are BIG…so big that they take nearly two years to create and sometimes they’re tiny…like my newest cordial cherry design: my Easter Flower Patch Bunny.  I know bunnies actually have nothing to do with Easter, but they’re certainly a sign of Spring and have brought my kids and me much joy over the years watching them play chase in our back yard.  Once, I watched one of these bunnies stretch up as high as she could to nibble the petals right off of an unsuspecting flower…it was adorable!  So this newest cordial cherry collection the result of that day’s inspiration. 

 

Unlike most chocolatiers, our pieces are often a multi-day process of punching out specific shapes, sculpting various parts, dipping, and finally assembling all the pieces and applying the finishing touches.  On day one of production for our newest design I punch out “V” shaped sugar pieces and let them harden overnight.  These will become little bunny ears.  I also pipe by hand, tiny little flowers.  Once set, they can be painted with shimmer spray and then dotted with their center detail. 

 

Day two, requires sculpting the head out of a rolled fondant and shaping it around the “V” from the day before.  It’s important to set these on wax paper to create a flat bottom so they don’t roll around and also that they lift off easily when ready to dip.  These will set overnight as well to allow them dry enough so they will dip easily.

Day three…it’s time to dip our bunny heads into a white chocolate.  This process is delicate and must be conducted within about 10 seconds.  I use two of my favorite chocolate tools (reshaped paperclips)…one is used to lift the fondant head and the other is used to push it onto the wax paper.  Once the white chocolate sets up these sweet little bunny heads are ready for their hand-painted faces. 

 

We use white chocolate cordial cherries to be the body of our Easter Bunnies.  The cherry stem is removed and a dollop of chocolate glues the bunt head to its body.  The stem of the flower is painted and the flower attached.  The final step is to pipe the little bunny feet and arms.  And that's it...three days later...our sweet little Easter Bunny cordial cherries are complete.

OMG I love all of your cherries – not only the labor intensive designs but the amazing flavor! You are the best and it is evident it what you do. I wish I lives near Omaha (or maybe not), I would be there all the time. Thanks for the detailed process of this adorable creation!
