Chocolate Candy Bouquet
How to make a Candy Bouquet
If you want to make a chocolate candy bouquet, there are many different types to choose from, and many different special occasions that you can make them for, such as a wedding, a bridal shower, a baby shower, a graduation, a birthday party, an anniversary celebration, or even for a special Mothers’ Day gift. As you contemplate the specific occasion that you want your candy bouquet for, you can decide which option would be the most special and the most fitting for the person for whom you are buying it, or the people that will be observing it.
For example, you could buy a lovely chocolate fruit bouquet, with lovely flowers sculpted from cantaloupe, watermelon, pineapple, strawberries, and more, some of which are left in their natural colors and others which are dipped in chocolate to add to the tastiness of the arrangement! While this type of bouquet is easier to buy than to make, you can also make these fruit bouquets with a little time and practice, and the right equipment. You will need to use knives or other cutting devices to cut the fruit into flower shapes, and then dip the flowers into chocolate that is heated but will harden quickly when the fruit is dipped into it. Arrange these flowers on long wooden sticks designed for food, and make them into a bouquet.
Another possibility, which is somewhat less messy to eat, is to buy or make a chocolate cookie bouquet, or a chocolate lollipop bouquet. Depending on the age and tastes of your guests, one or the other might be the more ideal choice for the special event you are planning.
Besides these chocolate edible arrangements, there are other kinds of edible candy flowers that you can make for special occasions. For example, you can decorate a cake, and design candy roses made of frosting, arranging them in a special bouquet arrangement on a wedding, birthday, or anniversary cake. You can also make home-made rose-shaped mints for a wedding, or even chocolate flowers if you have a flower candy mold. These are some of the simpler candies to make, and if you arrange them correctly, you can make them to look like a bouquet to cheer up the serving tables.
Using chocolate bouquets as decorations for your special event is a great choice, because not only do they look beautiful, but people also love the flavor, thus they enjoy not only seeing them, but also eating them! A chocolate candy bouquet can even help save you money, because instead of having to buy flowers and refreshments for your event, you can buy them both all wrapped up in one beautiful edible bouquet!
