Pretzels, Pretzels Everywhere

I am excited about a corporate order I am creating for a new client. The client wants chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered popcorn, classic milk "thank you" truffles and cup cakes. I am not a cup cake provider so they hired a very talented chef to create the cup cakes. Today, I wanted to feature the pretzels. I have created chocolate covered pretzels for a very long time, but never for this many clients at once.

We are making them in 100 piece increments.

I have become so addicted to the sweet, salty and crispy treat.

I am thinking about giving a bag to one or two of my blog followers that leave comments over the next couple of days. What do you think?

Custom Chocolates - Happy 14th Birthday

Yesterday, the Ramirez family celebrated Nena's 14th birthday party at Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates. Despite her young age, Nena knew exactly what she wanted for her party. She ordered a custom dark chocolate and cappuccino cake to serve 12 people. In addition, she created her own custom truffles to give to her guest as party favors. She wanted a milk and dark chocolate combination so we made a milk chocolate truffle with dark chocolate ganache. To finish the truffle, she wanted it to say "Thank You". The party was a huge success.

The above card was made by Momental Designs. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the cake. It was beautiful.......covered in whipped cream and decorated with chocolate covered coffee beans.

Something Blue - Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta & The Atlantan Bride

I just finished the custom chocolates for the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta & The Atlantan Bride event this weekend. After I finished wrapping the boxes in our luxury European ribbon, everything looked so precious. We create custom truffles for Modern Luxury (The Atlantan Bride and The Atlantan). I wanted to deviate from our standard Atlantan Bride truffle flavor, but Celeste at Modern Luxury is a big fan of our milk champagne. So milk champagne it is.

I will post pictures of the event next week.

Presenting Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates

I had the opportunity last night to be the guest speaker for the Georgia Branch of the Association of Bridal Consultants. The dinner was held at the City Club of Buckhead.

The club had very elegant decor

The window ceiling was amazing

The service was exceptional

The dining area was classic and the food was very good. Unfortunately, it looked so good that I forgot to take a picture.

Sample boxes of our custom chocolates

Overall, the night was fun and the chocolates were a hit. My favorite part of the night was watching everyone enjoy the chocolates.

On another note, I wanted to recognize some extraordinary women that I have work with. Gail & Hester of Wedding Soiree voted the #1 Wedding Planner in Atlanta, Nicole of Peachtree Weddings voted #4 Wedding Planner in Atlanta and Shannon of Belletti Photography voted #3 Photographer in Atlanta. Shanoon took some exceptional pictures of my chocolates featured in The Atlantan, The Atlantan Bride, AJC, etc.

Southern Wedding Launch Party

I had a blast last night at the SW Launch Party. I could not decide what type of truffles to make for the event, but I settled on a white chocolate truffle with a dark chocolate ganache. The dark chocolate ganache had a hint of Tahitian vanilla bean. I finished the truffle with gold dust to give it a little sparkle.

The event was held at The Dogwood Restaurant in Atlanta. The restaurant was beautiful, the food exceptional and the service unmatched. I was happy to see my truffles disappear minutes into the celebration.

I send my congrats to the ladies at SW.

Custom Chocolates: Allen Wedding

The Allen wedding was all about detail and elegance. Every item was personally designed by the bride. I normally work with wedding planners, but on occasion, I have the opportunity to work directly with the bride and groom. The Allens were looking to create a custom chocolate and I worked with them to create a new line of wedding chocolates. I am confident more brides will be requesting this custom chocolate.

The bride wanted her monogram in red wine so we selected a white chocolate background.

Since some of chocolates were solid white and others were white with milk chocolate centers, we selected a sweet, yet mild white chocolate with a hint of vanilla.

The detail in this design was amazing. My amateur picture could not completely capture the beauty of this chocolate.
Fortunately, Dean Ruiz of Dean Ruiz Photography has promised to send me pictures of my chocolates and the wedding. He also emailed me the following:
".......your chocolates were a huge success! Many of your chocolates didn't even make it out of the door, simply because it tasted as delicious as it looked......... Dreamy Gelato & Chocolates did a phenomenal job! We overheard so many positive comments about how classy the chocolates looked, and how it was such a wonderful idea."
