Today we would visit klik's mother, so yesterday evening we set to making some new chocolates. We used the new molds I ordered directly from the factory.
The stack of chocolates. The milk chocolate is made with the Imperial mold (the first one I got), and is filled with speculaas ganache. The dark chocolates are made with the Vertigo mold, and are filled with strawberry jam with liquor. The white chocolates are made with the Cubo mold, and are filled with coffee ganache.
A cross-section of two of the filled chocolates. I didn't cut a Vertigo in half, because that filling is quite liquid and would spill everywhere. :)
Air bubbles trapped in the chocolate makes for 'gaps' within the form. But when you have to fill 'em, you can't really shake the molds around to release the trapped air, because the small hole you dug in the chocolate would fill up again...
I'm quite pleased with these. Especially the combination of white chocolate with the coffee ganache is wonderful.
