Croquembouche and Choc'nbouche
Croquembouche (or croque en bouche) is a traditional French wedding cake. It is made from profiteroles filled with pastry cream and constructed using golden caramel to stick all the crispy balls of pastry and creamy filling together, resulting in a glorious tower of sweet treats. Perfect for any birthday, anniversary party or wedding. Chocolatician has been providing these incredible sticky structures for very special days for over six years. Choose either chocolate sauce or raspberry sauce to accompany it and indulge yourself and your guests with this taste and texture explosion.
Hang on ...what's that coming over the hill is it a ??? Yes indeed it is a chocolate monster of a pud......
Chocolatician created the Choc'nbouche as an audacious big sister to the Croquembouche. Instead of caramel holding it together it's the chocolate that does the embracing here. Each profiterole is dipped in Belgian chocolate of your choice and turned into a sweet bud of a pure chocolate rose. Every petal hand made and smothered around the profiterole bud, once attached to the chocolate cone, an awe-inspiring erection of edible floristry that will impress even the most frivolous of guests.
Available in milk chocolate and gold or white chocolate and pinks/yellows/violets. Any colour you could ever dream of really. You choose the look and colour scheme, flavour and height and we will do the rest. We can add fruit to it or fresh flowers. Each guest will get to pluck a chocolate rose from the tower and then eat it along side a unrobed profiterole, classically filled with a vanilla cream and serving sauce.
The Croquembouche and Choc'nbouche start at around £5.50 per guest including delivery, berries and sauciness (chocolate or Raspberry Couli) to make this cake a real money saving pudfest.
Luckily the fire alarm was right there because this cake and this couple were super hot!!!!
If you are interested in finding out more about having a Croquembouche or a Choc'nbouche for your party then get in touch HERE
We deliver anywhere within a 1.5hr radius of Brighton.
Another Easter is nearly here and Chocolatician has been at it again. In the third and hopefully not final Chocollaboration with Plunge Productions Ltd it has been a very busy couple of weeks and an enormous amount of chocolate has been melted and sprayed in the workshop to create this wonderful easter treat!
On Friday morning we were delighted, nervous and extremely proud to unveil a 6ft high, chocolate Thomas the Tank engine. Having successfully built and decorated this chocolate masterpiece and safely delivered it to London's Kings Cross Station it has been left for three days to be admired by commuters and tourists over the easter weekend.
Made of over 120kg of Belgium chocolate which equates to around 50,000 chocolate buttons the tantalizing train is a creation commissioned by Matel to celebrate Easter and really give the kids something to talk about and the adult to freak over...one child broke through the security and ripped a wheel arch straight off!! The things that kids will do for toys and chocolate!!
Here is how we made it....
What's up folks? Yes that's right it's nearly chocolate cumberbunny time again!
You remember you may have seen the little fella hop out of a whole host of media forums such as The evening standard, Telegraph, The Metro, Bored Panda and Vanity Fayre to name but a few.
After the amazing success of the Cumberbunny last easter and the unfathomable drive it gave to the launch of Chocolatician, it is time to leave the hutch door ajar and release the iconic chocolatey rabbit back into the world and see what mayhem it can cause this time.
Check out this article about the rise of the Cumberbunny as a meme and the battles that have ensued !!
Order yourself or your Cumberfan one now in time for Easter. The chocolate bunny is hand moulded using Belgium chocolate. Please allow 7-14 days for delivery as these creatures take time to create and package up safely for the journey.
Shipping still only available to the U.K. and parts of Europe. We apologise to all the wonderful U.S, Australian and Asian fans who have shown such incredible support for the Cumberbunny. Getting chocolate celebrity themed things overseas, through hot countries and hot border control is a very tricky business. Please sign up to the newsletter if you haven't already to get updates. If you are coming over to the U.K or know someone on the island who might be able to help get one to you then get in touch for local delivery.

What better way to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday but to commemorate her in divine Belgian chocolate. 3kg of the stuff in fact. 360 hours of incredibly hard work and perfectionism has resulted in this magnificent and deliciously tasty chocolate bust of her Majesty the Queen.
The process started with Tim Simpson of Plunge Productions, the same sculptor who created the original Cumberbunny and Chocobatch clay sculpts, using over 50 photo references of her majesty and 20 kg of clay to painstakingly sculpt the royal icon.
The food-safe mould of this was then used by Jen, Head Chocolatician, to cast this amazing chocolate replica and in a similar way these adorable Choccy Pups.
After 6 weeks of artistry the Queen is ready for unveiling just in time for the big celebrations still to come this weekend for the trooping of the colour and the Queen’s unofficial birthday.
Lets hope she catches a glimpse of her sweet portrait and approves whilst feasting on her own chocolate corgi which is on it’s way to Buckingham palace right now!
The chocolate monarch is available in the U.K. in Milk or White Chocolate as pictured below. She comes adorned with hand piped chocolate diamond Diadem crown and jewellery truly fit for a Queen.
The Corgis are from £26.00 and are available in the Uk and parts of Europe. They are minimum 250g and are available in plain Milk , Plain Dark and White Chocolate with added details.
Cumberbunnies are not just for Easter or so it would seem.
After the wonderfully successful launch of Chocolatician and the explosion of love and amazement for the cumberbunnies this Easter , we have taken a few weeks out to focus on the next projects, catch up on sleep and replenish stocks of the choccy rabbit! The Cumberbunnies are back!!
You can now purchase a Cumberbunny in Milk , Dark or White chocolate by visiting the chocolatician website here!
Shipping still only available to the U.k. and parts of Europe. Sorry to U.s. fans who have shown such incredible support for the Cumberbunny. We are doing everything we can to try and make it possible for the bunnies to get their butts over to you. You will be informed as soon as this is possible. Please sign up to the newsletter if you haven't already to get updates.
£2 from every bunny purchased will be donated to the Save the Children UK charity to carry on the amazing fundraising that the first Cumberbunny ever made, managed to achieve in a charity auction this Easter.
Delivery is 7-14 days so please order in good time for birthday presents and special treats.
Every Easter Lunch should involve a fair amount of chocolate but is this too much for you?
After an incredible launch for Chocolatician with the Cumberbunnies it was back to the chocolate casting for Jen, Chocolatician and the gang from Plunge Productions (sculptures and mould makers extraordinaires) for a super tasty job for Aldi for Easter 2016.
The Task was to create a full size chocolate roast lunch for a family of four. This was to include table, four chairs, vegetables, leg of lamb, wine bottle and glasses, condiments, cutlery, crockery and a plate of hot cross buns. Everything you can see in these fab images (Aldi/Crate47) is cast or clad from delicious, smooth and luxurious chocolate.
It took three weeks in total to create this chocolate masterpiece and over 50kg of chocolate.
After its completion it was taken for a trip to London and assembled on the South Bank of the River Thames for the public to sit at and have a good sniff. There were a few peas consumed and plenty of children and pigeons swarming to chance their luck on a nibble or two.
Thankfully it made it in one piece to the Supermarket's Head Quarters who commissioned it and they used it to promote their easter products and spread the word on how 'This Easter, at Aldi, customers can feed a family of four a roast lunch for a mere £3.80 per head – cheaper than a single luxury Easter egg in most UK supermarkets.'
You can watch and learn how we did it here.
