I made this cute little bouquet of chocolate lollipops for Ikshu’s first birthday party. The idea, again, came from my cousin who inspired me to make the decorated tray. She’d learnt about this chocolate bouquet at a chocolate making workshop she’d attended.
She’d used a proper woven basket, liked it with what is called ‘ brick’ in creative parlance, and, in simple terms, is nothing but a sponge- like material that is also often used in flower baskets.
She had made moulded chocolate, stuck proper lollipop sticks into them, wrapped it up in chocolate pauper and oorganza to look like flowers and stick them into the prepared baskets.
I keep out this simple and used simple craft items and materials available at home. I chose a transparent Tuperware container for the basket. I cut out three thermocol rounds to fit into my basket, stacked them one on top of the other, stuck toothpicks through them to hold them in place and wrapped out all up in pink/ red crepe paper. I then for this into the Tupperware and the basket was ready.
I then stuck one toothpick into each chocolate I’d made. These chocolate lollipops I stuck into the basket and lo, your chocolate lollipop bouquet is all done 🙂 The best part was seeing the kids coming back to the table for more!
