A night in the Icing Sugar Towers! @LeDolci

IMG_20130215_191350I was invited to join a Chocolate Truffle making class over at the Le Dolci studio (The Icing Sugar Towers) recently, and it was a wonderful and sweet experience. Let me start off by saying just how lovely it is in there. It’s so pretty; there’s cute cakes and cupcakes everywhere, pretty balloons, everything is pink and white… just lovely. I didn’t want to leave; it was like wonderland, but with cakes, sweets, chocolates, and cupcakes galore. Heavenly.

 Cherry giving us the 411 on all things chocolate 🙂

The class started off with Cherry giving us the goods on all things chocolate, then it was time to get down to business. Although I have loads of experience eating chocolate, I haven’t worked with chocolate since Chef school which was years ago, so I was totally excited to go back to my “roots” and get my hands dirty… and eat some chocolate!

Then it was home time for me and my 20 truffles!!

Le Dolci offers sooooo many other classes, so if your into sweet treats, but chocolate isn’t your thing (how is that possible??), there are lots of other classes you take.  There are cupcake, cookie, and cake decorating classes, Parisian Macarons making classes, pie making classes and more! The classes are also taught in small groups so you get that one-on-one attention 🙂 You should go.

Thank you so much to Lisa for inviting me, and to Cherry for an awesome class!

stay sweet 🙂
