I have been known to make a cake consisting of brownies, chocolate mousse, and chocolate ganache. For this, I have dubbed myself the Queen of Chocolate and made a chocolate tiara to inform the world of my status. I freehanded the design made of dark, milk and white chocolate. This particular tiara is actually the fourth I made. The others did not survive long enough to take pictures. Fortunately, the prototypes were delicious. I think this is my husband's favorite craft project yet.



Yum!

And even an action shot! However, I still think chocolate is better in your mouth than on your head.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!

And on the not eating side of things it is just gorgeous, you did an amazing job!

Nope. No gold glitter. The chocolate was sweating a bit as it was warming up (I had put it in the refrigerator to set). It had a nice effect though!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments.  Smiley

I saw the thumbnail of this and had to click on it because I thought it looked like it was made of chocolate.  I am ecstatic to know that it was.  Is it just straight chocolate that you piped into the design?  How did you get the lovely curved tiara shape?  (I don't have a lot of experience with chocolate other than eating it  Wink )

It is just melted chocolate chips piped into the design. After I piped the milk chocolate onto the dark chocolate, I stuck the whole thing in a warm oven so that the milk chocolate design would sort of sink into the dark chocolate. To get the curved shape, I just wrapped the silpat (the silicone and fiberglass nonstick baking mat I was piping the chocolate onto) around a 2 liter soda bottle. After breaking 3 tiaras before this one, I finally got the hang of it.  Chocolate is fun (though frustrating) to work with. Eating it afterwards was great though. Smiley

OMG!!! What a great tiara. I love any craft that can be eaten afterwards, especially when it is chocolate.
