Chocolate Casserole

Making this chocolate casserole for the shoot was perfect for the Halloween season (given that the chocolate casserole looks like a giant lump of mud!). What makes this dish so ugly and yet so delicious is the sauce that it’s baked in: A mixture of brandy, syrup and chopped chocolate…in this case, dark chocolate. Then I dropped spoonfuls of a dark chocolate cake batter on it and popped it into the blodgett (gosh I love this machine!) after a couple of minutes, the batter forms into little islands that float on top of a slightly thick and shiny sea of chocolate.

Since we made this shoot edible, I gave Mye (of Photokitchen…yes, again!) our photographer a taste and she loved it. For this one, I bought some organic eggs to make it look even homier. I think all our eggs should be this color…basically, it’s nicer! These cost me around 80+ for 6 pieces only!

As for the styling, we did a more country and “organic” look for this one. It kind of reminds me of River Cottage (that show on TLC) where everything seems old and English. Hehe! We went for a more natural look for the casserole, so I just plopped the cake and the sauce on the yellow crockery. I’m really starting to enjoy these lovely shoots Mye! πŸ™‚
