And you thought just because I stuck another post or two in there that I was done talking about masks!
Ah, you'll have to endure a few more mask posts over the course of the next year! And here is another.
Do you like this one?
How about this?
Or this one?
Perhaps you'd like to wear this one to a masked ball!!
And if you did, someone might bite your nose off!
You see, these are all made from chocolate!
All of these masks -- and the sculptures on which they are displayed -- were crafted from chocolate for the MSU Museum's annual chocolate party. In addition to having vendors from area candy shops and bakeries offer samples of everything, ranging from mousse to turtles, fudge to cupcakes, truffles to scones -- and everything in between -- a number of pastry chefs create these chocolate sculptures.
I confess, I love a good cooking contest. "Next Food Network Star" is my favorite show on TV and if I happen to turn on and catch "Chopped," "Worst Cooks in America" or "Iron Chef," I am a willing captive. One I always find amazing are the cake challenges, where everyone is working to a theme.
Well, this theme worked big time. I can't tell you who won -- we didn't stay that long.
(After all, all that chocolate can be a bit too much! Really, it can!)
Then there is the panic of "what if I run into my Weight Watchers leader?" (Of course, she'd probably think the same thing!) And I'd probably grab one of those masks, put it on my face and just keep walking!
But it was a delightful event, and I had to share these beautiful creations with you. After all, you deserve something sweet! Or even a rose!
I really need to find some of that metallic looking powder -- beautiful!
