Chocolate Lego For "Art Of The Brick"

Really cool exhibits at "Art of the Brick"

Our own giant chocolate blocks (chlocks?) of Lego

Set up inside the exhibit - opening night

Lemon & raspberry bricks

These proved to be too popular to keep up with production


Very clever stuff

Aussie icons in Lego too at the Melbourne exhibit

Even Warnie was impressed

New York based artist Nathan Sawaya creates amazing art from the versatile Lego brick. Recently his phenomenal exhibition "Art Of The Brick"came to Melbourne and we were asked to design and create a chocolate Lego installation to mark the events opening.

As a consequence of this event some pieces of chocolate Lego found it's way into our cake cabinet and they proved to be BIG hit with our customers. Well due to production issues (ie. sticking individual jelly pieces on by hand - made us go dizzy!) we are stopping the Lego for now. It WILL return though at some stage and we will let you know when it comes back in the Studio.

For now enjoy the images above and we will endeavour to get the Lego back ASAP, thanks so much to all of those who have enquired and apologies to all of those who missed out.

You can still catch "Art Of The Brick" here in Melbourne though and you should if you can because it is great fun for all the family.

Starlight 5 Chefs Dinner Images 16.06.11

Just a quick post to let you all have a look at some of the images from a very successful and rewarding 5 Chefs Dinner for Starlight Australia last month. Ian and Darren worked hard on impressing the 500 guests in attendance with their dessert "White Chocolate & Vanilla Mousse, Spiced Pineapple Jam and Yoghurt". Huge sums of money were raised for this extremely worthwhile charity and it was a humble experience to help in a small way to improving some lives. We hope to be asked again and applaud the event organisers and the very talented bunch of chefs also in attendance that night. Well done Shane Delia, Frank Camorra, Dan Hunter & Jason Camillo it was great to work with you all.

A fairly new dessert: Smoked White Chocolate, Coffee & Aniseed

Sorry for the delay in between posts lately, we have been concentrating solely on improving the range, layout and production of Sweet Studio and it is taking up almost all of our time. The store is looking fantastic and business has significantly improved over the last month or so. There is still lots to do and we are working on a few new desserts to implement into our range. For now though here are a few images from the last month or so to whet your appetite, thanks to all who follow this blog and for all our fantastic customers. See you soon.
