Spray on Chocolate

As a professional event planner, I get to do some pretty amazing things. This past week I attended a conference with other people who do what I do. One of our sessions was touring a hotel from the "back of house" which is the operation side where hotel guests normally do not go.
We had a dinner planned that night for 400 and were able to see how they were getting ready for our event. We even helped prepare dessert.The event was in San Antonio, so the Alamo provided dessert inspiration. On the plate is the outline of the Alamo and it was created with chocolate. They used a paint spray gun and a specialized liquid chocolate. The form was a rubber shower mat with the Alamo shape cut out. We literally layed the mat over the plate and sprayed the chocolate through the Alamo shaped hole. What fun!
