February is a month of love, especially today, 14th February where love is in the air in every corner.
With chocolatier, Andrea Pedraza in Dallas, chocolate has become an inspiration she hopes ladies will love. She has decided to make chocolate shoes! Ladies love shoes and cannot resist chocolate, she has managed to combine the two. She has decorated high heels made out of chocolate and she is receiving quite a buzz from her customers.
“They come here at the last-minute, they get this beautiful shoe in a box ready to be given away as a gift,” she says of her customers who are mainly men, not women.
In Japan, there are chocolate faces for your loved on this valentines day. The chocolatier makes chocolate out of your loved one’s own face. FabCafe in Shibuyu, Tokyo uses a 3D scanner to take a picture, which is turned into a silicone mould. It is then filled with chocolate truffle and presented in a box of chocolates.
