Last week, I had an opportunity to do two demos on chocolates at the Chocolate Festival in Denver, Colorado. I was not sure what to exact because I usually do not do these kinds of things but I had tons of fun. I had a group of four people helping me from making the chocolates to being at the booth. I put my heart and soul into every step and did not sleep much preparing for the event. And the last chocolate festival I have been to was in Paris, France Le Salon du Chocolat so I was comparing my expectations to that. When I thought I had everything under control Channel 9 News called me to do a demo.Oh my! So even less sleep and pushed myself harder. The demos rocked and was proud of the Channel 9 News demo they even said they will call me back for any demo with chocolates or pastries. I could have not of done it all with out my lovely mom for helping me at the last moment.
I sure have come a long way. When I was younger I was scared to be on stage, to talk to strangers, and to be alone now I crave it all. What’s next?
Here’s the flyer I handed out to all the lucky fans that saw the demo.
These are a few confections that I made for the Chocolate Festival. Dark Chocolate Truffles, Chocolate Rugelach, Coconut Truffles, and Dragee Almonds. I will be doing another Chocolate Festival at Winter Park, Colorado on June 22nd.
You can watch how these Dark Chocolate Truffles are made on my YouTube channel.
