With expert tuition you will learn a variety of advanced skills including how to hand decorate and airbrush chocolate moulds using cocoa butter colours (obtaining that much sought-after glossy surface shine and using masking stencils), discover some interesting and less usual ganache infusions using herbs and spices, create delicate butter ganache and fruit caramel, use a variety of chocolate making methods to suit a range of situations and of course strengthen previous skills such as tempering and casting moulds.
