Today is the last day of the exams. Phew! I feel relieved ... But this semester is rather different. Usually the kids will receive their report card on the last day of the school before the break. But this semester, they will have it after the school break.
Last night I made chocolate painting. I used the Hello Kitty and the Christmas wreath picture that I found on the internet. This is my first time to do it. It took me 4 hours for the whole process from chopping the chocolate, melting the chocolate, paint the picture on the parchment paper and let it dry cold in the fridge for 1 minute. I only got 8 pieces, and I broke 1. I still need a lot of practice but it's fun to do. I want to take the pictures on how I did that but it was so hard to do the painting and have to take the picture by myself, so I just gave up. Probably next time. Kids love it especially the green chocolate is mint flavor.
This time I didn't took a picture with the foods inside the snack box. But the foods that I prepared for the snack bento was pretty much the same : heart shapes sandwiches with Hello Kitty chocolate painting on the top, mini roll cake - strawberry & pandan flavors, sweetened cherries, mini strawberries, and mini tangerines.


this is so sweet - tutorial pls :)

does the choc melt easily?

GOSH! Is there anything that you could not do? I really need to bow down to you lar. :P

@javapot : Thanks a lot Kirsten! I will try my best to share the pictorial, I will post it later. I will need to ask my kids later after school. But shouldn't too easy to melt for few hours :)

@Yeapies : Thanks a lot for your kind comment! I'm willing to try anything cute LOL :D

So amazing! I love your photography styling too. Everything looks so mouth-watering good! Great job with the chocolate painting. Not sure I'd be able to do as wonderful a job.

Your talent continues to amaze me! This is on another level of awesomeness! :) I hope your kids tell you how much they appreciate the love, care and effort you put into these little masterpieces. :)

Painting with chocolate sounds like a fantasy. I'm sure I would end up with lots of chocolate in my mouth...

Plus this work of art is so perfect, I want to lacquer it and hang it on my Christmas tree! Super ambitious and beautiful. I wish I could take a seminar from you!!

@Chantale : Thanks a lot Chantale! I'm happy with the first result, hope can do better next time though. You are a very talented artist ... I'm sure will be no problem for you to do this :)

@Sonoma Bento : Thanks a lot Michelle! So sweet of you. To see my kids' happy little face and said they love it, the 4 hours work is totally worth it :)

@sherimiya : Lucky that I'm not a big fan of chocolate. My husband kept taking the chocolate though last night, so I asked him to stay away from the kitchen LOL :D Thanks a lot Sheri for always so sweet with your comment!

You should work at a cake shop! Then I would order one for Xmas from you! I'm looking forward to seeing a decorated cake you made. :D

Cutey deco!

This looks really cute and perfect.
Looking forward to see your tutorial, because I do not know this technique at all :)

yep, you should totally work in a cake shop... bento shop, deco shop .... and give courses about them. :) Beautiful work Lia!! I am so lazy to do anything with chocolate. :P
I would probably eat all the chocolate before it hits the parchment paper ^_^

The hello kitty is so beautifully made. What an incredible artist you are :-) Doing the chocolate painting must take so much patience!!

Making chocolate art would be better for me than doing icing, hehe :) Since I don't like chocolate I wouldn't eat as much of it!

Gorgeous Lia! It's absolutely perfect!

Incredible artistry, Lia! Your chocolate paining is beautifully clear and vivid and magically cute...WOW!

@Kyo : Thanks a lot Kyo! I'm not an expert too but will try my best to share the pictorial later :)

@karaimame : Thanks a lot Lilian! I'm such a noob in baking, should learn a lot from you. I'm getting it there, slowly hahaha ... :D

@Natakiya : Thanks a lot Natakiya! Since you mentioned about the icing, I haven't started to make my sugar cookies. Hope can make it this week :)

@Susan Yuen : Thanks a lot Susan!

@bentobird : Thanks a lot Jenn for your sweet comment as always!
