Baltic news, News from Latvia, BNN.LV, BNN-NEWS.COM, BNN-NEWS.RUOn 8 April, masters of delicacies will produce the largest caramel lollipop in Baltic States in mc2 centre of interior and delicacies in Riga, Krasta Street 68a. It will weigh around 20 kg and will be 1.5 m large. On 9 April, it will be possible to not only have a look at it, but also try it.

During the confectioneries festival, this lollipop will be cut into smaller fragments at Gastronome delicacies store and handed to visitors.

«Caramel is an incredibly colourful material to work with. It is perfect for creating sculptures and decorations. It can be used to create lots of things. Masterpieces made from caramel look outstanding,» – says famous Baltic sweets designer Elena Kliment. She will give three master class performances on 9 April: Caramel composition, Chocolate sculpture and Sugar art.

Last year, it was Elena Klimant who created a real room made of chocolate in Riga. This sweet room had more than 50 different elements. Among them was furniture, a fireplace, candles, rugs, paintings, a clock, flowers, a dining table and a dog. Every item was of actual, natural size. It was the only room in the world with its own unique smell. Around 600 kg of chocolate were used to create this room. Chocolate was carried from different parts of the world – Switzerland, Belgium, New Zealand and Brazil.

«It is incredibly interesting to work with chocolate. It can be moulded into any shape and it has a pleasant smell. The necessary temperature when working with chocolate is 35 C – 40 C. If heated up even more, chocolate melts quickly and loses its form. If the mass is quickly cooled down, it becomes solid. This is why it is necessary to maintain a specific temperature. Imagine how hard it is to work. It is very pleasant, though. Creating a whole room of chocolate is similar to creating an ice sculpture. Chocolate is warm, it smells nice and creates a special kind of atmosphere. It’s so different – white, black, milk…The perfect working material to fuel an artist’s creativity,» – says E.Kliment.
