My name in...Chocolate

A few weeks ago I went to an EAT Festival event 'Handmade Chocolates at Home' run by Bev Stephenson, she shared her tips on tempering chocolate and creating some quick and easy chocolate gifts.  So I thought I'd put my tempering skills to use - the only difference being Bev used a microwave, and I used a bowl over a pan of simmering water (because I don't own a microwave).

Once melted, I decanted it into a piping bag and had a go at piping some buttons, words and 'artistic squiggles' - unfortunately I didn't get the chocolate quite in temper - because when it set, it set dull rather than shiny, and it didn't snap like it should.  It still tasted like chocolate.
