Chocolate Food Art Starry Night

 

This might be the yummiest painting ever! Edible chocolate paint in cute homemade silver paint tubes. Plus a solid chocolate palette and thin white chocolate paper. What masterpieces will your guests create and then eat?

After I posted the chocolate pencils recipe recently, I asked what artwork you would most like to see in chocolate. Amazingly, over 200 people requested ‘Starry Night’ by Van Gogh. While it looked deceptively simple at first, I quickly realised just how many brush strokes and beautiful colours went into this famous painting. Make sure you watch it being painted in time-lapse at the end of the video.

    Dear Ann,
    I was so inspired by the chocolate Starry Night that I decided to create my own. I decided to create a savory Starry Night with potatoes, fried onions and other ingredients. More details here: https://www.ihath.com/2014/05/21/starry-night-eat-your-art/
    Thank you for the inspiration.

    Hi,
    I just found that wonderful idea, which I would like to do try out myself. What’s the size of your edible paper? How do you apply the paint. Looks like as if you used plastic bags filled with paint? Or Brushes?
    Thanks!
    X Britta

    I love the picture you drew ??

  4. How long do the paints last and how do you store them? (i.e. Fridge etc)

    • Hi Rebecca, Ganache should be kept in the fridge for up to a month. You can freeze it though.
