All those colors, those textures, those fun designs – the kids love these… and grown-ups alike!

Let’s recap the toppings you can use: pistachio, almonds, nuts, freeze dried raspberries, salt flakes, honeycomb, caramelized nuts, dried fruits. Need I go on?! So many options, so little time! The sky is the limit, literally!

I think that’s the key to mastering pretty much anything in the pastry world – practice, practice, practice! When you love what you do however, these kind of things are never a chore. Mind you, chocolate is amazing, working with it can never be a chore!
