When Godiva  got in touch with me and asked if I would like to design an Emma Block Illustration Easter Egg with them how could I say no? Chocolate and illustration is bit of a dream combination. I was invited along with five other creative influencers, Sophie Tea, Gizzi Erskine, Rosie Fortescue, Henry Holland and Candice Brown (Bake Off winner) to transform a beautiful Godiva milk chocolate egg (honestly I was a bit starstruck). The evening started with an introduction to chocolate tasting and tempering from the Godiva chocolatiers, then we set to work personalising our eggs.

I had decided to go for a Easter bonnet design and I had requested sugar paste so that I could hand make 3-D flowers. I started by carefully rolling out a white sugar paste and cutting out the silhouette of the woman’s head before hand painting the face with food dye. I made the hat out of a oval piece of sugar paste covered with gold leaf, which I attached with edible glue. I then started to make the sugar paste flowers by hand, petal by petal. I used food colouring and brush to add depth to some of the flowers and I added touches of gold leaf. The chocolatiers from Godiva helped me place each one, carefully attaching it with melted chocolate.
