Chocolate Camera

chocolate food art how to cook that

There’s a sweet, sticky tug-of-war that occurs every week in my kitchen as I film my latest crazy creation – the wrestle between making beautiful food and also getting the perfect shot for video. I still shoot and edit all my videos personally, which is probably why I have chocolate ingrained into the focus bezel and record button of my camera. Today’s video is inspired by what my DLS may one day look like – a camera made entirely out of chocolate.


To make this chocolate camera you will need:

900g (31.75 ounces) Chocolate (how to temper)
1/3 cup mixed dried fruit and nuts
circle cutters

Chocolate Camera Template

    I made the chocolate camera for my dad as his Christmas present, he loved it. My dad loves taking photos, that’s why I made the camera. My whole family thought it was amazing. I think I did really well, especially since I’m only 16.

  18. Why so much that’s to much for template

    • Hi Shaylyn, This template was very complex to create and hence the cost is very reasonable considering the amount of work Ann put into creating and testing it.
