Making of the fish trophy

by Ellen Mueller on October 20, 2009, no comments

Just for fun, I thought I’d show how I made the 3 foot long chocolate fish trophy that was featured in last Friday’s “1st Annual Black & White Sustainability Mixer & Recognition Ceremony.”

Step 1: Make wood fish
Step 2:  Make a mold of the fish (I vacuum-formed the wood fish in 2 pieces because our vacuum-former was not big enough to do the whole thing at once, and then taped the halves together and embedded them in plaster for sturdiness)

Step 3:  Pour chocolate into the mold, let cool completely, and pull out a chocolate fish!

Step 4:  Decorate with little chocolate disks that look like scales.
Step 5: Give the trophy away to people that will eat it!
