Hip, hip, hurray! My latest Craftsy class, Delicious Decorations: Chocolate Flowers, has launched! Click here to pick the class up for 50% off regular price. (I’m the only one with this link, so you can only get this discount from me. 😉 )
In the class I teach you an easy tempering method that requires no tools at all! Next, I walk you through the different mediums I use in the class: dark chocolate, white chocolate, and coating chocolate. From there I teach you the chocolate flower techniques for creating peonies, pansies, small blossoms, ranunculus, tulips, parrot tulips, stephanotis, anemones, leaves, butterflies, and a sunflower. Phew! We top it off by decorating cakes finished with 2 different royal icing bark techniques – super popular birch and classic oak.
To celebrate this exciting class launch, I’m giving away a kit that contains everything you’ll need to get started making delicious chocolate flowers! Thanks to the wonderful folks at Chef Rubber and Sunflower Sugar Art, you have the chance to win a box that includes: fine chocolate (white and dark), confectionary colors, colored cocoa butter, coating chocolate, silicone molds, veiners, and other tools.
I’ve already announced 2 ways to win – share the chocolate flowers post on your Facebook page and include the hashtag #chocolateflowers or regram my class announcement on Instagram with the same hashtag, #chocolateflowers. Well, here’s a third way to win!! I decided to add this for those who aren’t into the whole hashtag thing. I have to say, I’m not a huge hashtagger myself, but it does make it super easy for me to find everyone who’s shared the post. For an additional entry, comment on this blog post with which one of the chocolate flowers from this class is your favorite. That’s it! Easy peasy.
In the meantime, pick up the class using my special 50% off link: www.craftsy.com/ext/ErinGardner_4820_H
Winner will be announced Friday. Good luck everyone! 🙂

I always have and always will have a huge love for anemones. So simple, yet gorgeous
The tullips! Love them (being Dutch that’s no surprise hahaha)
Hello! I am super excited to start practicing, and my favourite flower from the class is the ranunculus. They are now in full bloom in my sister’s garden and I can’t wait to start recreating them in chocolate! Happy thought!
The flowers are all so beautiful. Although I love them all, the peonies are calling out to me. lol
Pauline Happel says
You do beautiful work! The flowers are so realistic, they look as though you should be able to stick your nose in them and smell the scent of fresh flowers, but I’m guessing you will get the whiff of chocolate! 🙂
Lindsay Jenkins says
Oh can’t wait to the the class and make tulips!
I love peonies but my daughters favourite flowers are roses. Plus she loves chocolate she will be in heaven when she looks at these gorgeous chocolate roses!! : )
Christina Caswell says
I like the pansies. They remind me of the ones my mom
planted when I was a child.
Martha T says
I love the peonies — really they all look amazing — and can hardly wait to watch your class and start making chocolate creations of my own!
Im sooo in love with the closed peony! Peonies are my favourite in general thats why I took your previous class and loved it, the chocolate verion is beautifully excuted too 🙂
I can’t choose. I love every one of them and wish I could learn to make them as I’m starting to learn cake decorating for a career. These are all so gorgeous and real looking, its amazing.
I love the little pansies. So cute and an edible in real life too I believe. I’ll never look at floria due (our big flower festival) the same again
I love the peonies! I’m so excited to try out these new techniques.

I like both the peony, and the parrot tulip, probably the parrot tulip is the one I really want to learn to do right. Thanx! Bonnie
All of the flowers are gorgeous but you never see pansies on cakes and I am partial to pansies. I wish I lived close enough to go to the clalsls.
The class is online, so you can buy it and watch it wherever you like! 🙂
