Home made Choc-Top.

Yes, that is leftover Ganache from "The Cake".


(note, from a technical perspective, this shot is pretty much straight from the camera, no post processing beyond a small crop to remove my fingers)

    Yes, bow down and worship the cone of chocolate! Bringer of all things creamy and icy. Purveyor of ganaché toppings and life-shortening indulgences. ;-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Maria - I was about to bite into it and figured I should share it with my flickr friends ;)
  • Maki_C30D said:
    actually I think you are being mean to your flickr friends!!! hah!!
    Happy Valentine's Day!!!
  • David de Groot said:
    Oh no, ignore the mad cackle above, and just think of it as a virtual gift ;-)
    Happy Valentines to you too (although it's over here now).

    Thank you David! Now I just need to know which movie to watch! (Should you team up with Margaret to tell us?;)
  • David de Groot said:
    Casablanca of course!
  • Lalalian said:

    You even have waffle cones! {:->
  • David de Groot said:
    Sure do! Although I'll admit I did not make the cones.
  • borealnz said:
    Mmmm.... it looks divine!!!!

    Seen in my contacts photos
  • David de Groot said:
    And it was Jill :) I even put set ganache in the cone tip so one ended with a chocolate finish.
  • Al Betrayal said:
    Very cool and tasty shot David!

  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Al, it was indeed :) I have plans for an improved version (taste wise, not photographically).
  • Yorri¢k said:
    i like your work..both photography and icecream experimentation
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Richard :) I like how the ceiling ended up chocolaty brown also.

    My next plan is to drizzle melted ganache inside the cone, then chill it to set. Stuff layers of icecream and ganache into the cone and then top as above. Super chocolaty heaven in a cone!

    Well, if you insist honey, I guess I can volunteer to be a test subject in your experiment ;)
  • Margot- said:
    Ooh, looks glorious! I would like to volunteer my tastebud, too. (o^^o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Well I think you'd have to visit to do so Margot - somehow ice-creams via courier don't work ;-)
  • Margot- said:
    Shoot! Now where did I put my old flying broom? :o)
  • David de Groot said:
    No cackling thought Margot ;-)
