Chocolate packaging & boxes, something special?


Posted in: Opinion

I know what you mean. I hear this comment often. I couldn't find what I was looking for so I had it made. Expensive, yes, but I got exactly what I wanted, priceless!I've seen others use tins and suggest their customers "refill" the tins by ordering more truffles/chocolates. I hope my customers keep my custom-made boxes and reuse them, "They are too nice to just throw away."

Air Brushing & Table Top Depositor


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Love the photos! Thanks for sharing. I'm also checking into getting a airbrusher. I've been advised to used a plastic bag as my background then I could scrape off the excess and remelt it. Seems like a good idea!

Sole Proprietor vs LLC? What do you do?


Posted in: Allow Me to Introduce Myself

I'm starting as a sole proprietor and will change to an LLC when I get more assets and my liability goes up. Currently I have a 2 million dollar general liability insurance policy. Sounds like a lot but it's pretty standard. I do it this way because this is the advice I've been given pertaining to my situation. I'd say talk to a few different professionals (lawyer, accountant, other small business owners) about your particular situation.

Chocolatiers = Re-melters?


Posted in: Opinion

Hi MindyLove this discussion! Thanks for posting the question. I consider myself a chocolatier, of course not a chocolate maker. In my mind me these are 2 different businesses. I had a conversation this morning with someone at Guittard, my chocolate supplier. He seems to think we are competitors. I think the contrary. We should work together to promote each other. Now if Guittard were to start making truffles, things would be different ;)

Guitar


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

I also recently bought a Dedy with four frames directly for the producer and I LOVE it!Corresponded via email. Wired the money to a German bank account. Had to pick it up at the U.S. customs office at the airport. I wasn't expecting that. Found out because the cutter cost was over $500 I SHOULD have gotten a "bond". Not sure what that was about but customs was nice about it and let me take the cutter without a bond (as long as I promised to get one NEXT time). Cost $2500 US ($1680 EUR) in Sept. 2008. It's a big investment but the accuracy and efficiency is immeasurable. Really makes a difference in a professional look. Funny, the pictures I have posted on The Chocolate Life are of truffles I made before I bought the cutter.

Where to Buy Tools for Working with Chocolate


Posted in: Classifieds

Can anyone recommend a good brand for an infrared laser thermometer and then where to buy it? Currently I'm using a cheep non-digital thermometer that constantly falls into my bowl of melting chocolate. I admit, maybe I need to upgrade to a digital but if you have a good recommendation, I'll go straight to the top with a laser. If it makes a difference, I'm not tempering and I'm melting via bain marie. Many thanks!
