Free Tutorial Silicone Mold & Truffle Recipe

You HAVE to see this. These are Chocolate Walnut Truffles created by Marc Brownlow. That's not the amazing part. This is. He hand sculpted the skulls from polymer clay. Then made a form to pour a silicone mold into. Made the silicone mold of the skulls. Made the white chocolate truffle mix, poured it into the silicone molds, removed them from the silicone molds after they were set, made the walnut candied "brains" and voila! Halloween truffles. So, go to the site "Figs With Bri" (click HERE) to learn how to make a "pour in" silicone mold. I mean, each step is a work of art. He is unbelievable. I loved reading how he wanted to create something that wouldn't be gobbled up, but something that his friends would savor. He and his mother have maintained the site in honor of his wife, Bri's death from cancer in 2008 at the age of 32. He encourages all to savor each day, each moment, each bite.

This project took him weeks to complete. It has planted a teeny tiny thought in the back of my head, "I wonder if I could do something like this?" And how could I apply this technique to my own work? Thanks for your comments!
