InstructionsDefinitely get everything out and ready before you start. Also, if you like in Florida (like me) just know that it will take longer for your chocolate to set but it will eventually.

What was your inspiration?
My sister just had her first baby and we wanted to have a nice family dinner the night she came home. I had just watched the first part of the Decadent Chocolate Cakes class and knew I could make the Queen of Sheba to welcome my new nephew.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I made it! It came out just like it was supposed to. I did the upper lip temperature test for the glaze and it came out just the right temperature so it is has a nice sheen. I never would have thought I could make something so smooth and glossy with chocolate!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Account for your local temp and humidity level with how much time you allow the chocolate to set. I live in Florida and it took a little longer than Alice says in the class. Just wait it out and you won't be disappointed :)
