Happy Eid to everyone who is celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. I hope you all have a great day with your families and friends, enjoying lots of nice food and receiving gifts. Taqabbal Allahu Minna Wa Minkum (May Allah accept it from you and us).
Just before Easter I went to a chocolate fair in London with my sister and niece. We were excited about all the possible chocolate creations we’d see and we weren’t disappointed! There was was a big range of beautiful and clever designs which were a treat for all our senses.
Our favourite stall was one that had chocolate in various shapes and forms that we thought were really fun.
I think what I really like about these are that they have been dusted with cocoa to make them look rusty.
We also saw a collection of other chocolates in interesting (and slightly strange) shapes, from chocolate samosas to face prints.
Some of the chocolate looked so artistic and beautiful and just too good to eat. I especially love these colourful blocks
We came across other clever and pretty ideas too; chocolates named after Shakespeare’s leading ladies, elegant balls and textured cubes.
Aside from chocolate there were so many other delicious looking and sweet smelling treats; definitely something for everyone.
One of the best things was that we were able to have a taste of most of the products before buying, and we didn’t hold back!
We all really enjoyed the day, taking photos of all the lovely things to buy and taste. We bought home a range of goodies for ourselves and for family whilst trying to not to be tempted to buy one of everything! I still have lots more photos but I’ll have to post about them another time.
I would definitely recommend going to a chocolate festival for those with a sweet tooth and a love of eye candy. I’m currently thinking of going to the one that’s being held towards Christmas to see what other fun ideas that might be presented.
