What is it?
The Cosmic Collection is a brand new concept to Studio Chocolate, inspired by my interest in space and time. Ever since I was little and watched Doctor Who I've been fascinated by the Universe, so this to me, this was an obvious theme for our next collection. Matching flavours to the values and star signs of each planet, it ended up being the perfect theme to create chocolate through. For instance, Neptune is the God of the ocean, so making an elderflower and rose Jelly seemed very fitting. Saturn is the God of agriculture, so honey was used to encapsulate this, and so on. Its such an interesting theme for chocolate, from the way we mix the colours, by not quite mixing them completely so you can still see the movement in the paint - to the flavours that compliment the planets so well. You can buy The Cosmic Collection in store and online here - so go on.. #TASTETHEUNIVERSE
