David Domoney Chocolate Garden Ideal Home Show

In 2010 I built the world’s first chocolate garden at the Ideal Home Show. I wanted to show people how much plants influence our lives – chocolate comes from a plant, after all!

Did you know that when you open up a ripe, purple cocoa pods, the cocoa beans inside are a deep purple colour – the exact colour of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk wrappers!

The Chocolate Garden took a team of eight people, including professional chocolatiers, to build. We were molding, sculpting, spraying and painting melted milk chocolate for three weeks! Some structures are solid chocolate, and others have a wire frame for support.

We had great fun making gravel out of chocolate chips and edging from bars too!
