For my wedding, I wanted to make small gifts for the out of town guests, a small thank you for the many miles they traveled to be a part of our day. Our wedding location is known for salmon – my inspiration. I found a chocolate fish at a local chocolate factory and developed a method to reproduce that shape in clay.
Of the five fish I had purchased, only three molds came out, though none usable. In at least one, the chocolate actually boiled to the surface of the wet plaster.
