Swan Resort Chocolate Display – Holidays 2013

The chocolate display at the Swan Resort grows each year… This year, there was an angel on the top of the chocolate Christmas tree and a letter from Kandy Kane…

Dear Santa,

Milk and cookies are a bore so I gave them the boot;

you’ll need a bigger snack to fit the red suit!

I planned to surprise you with a vacation treat,

but creating this sculpture was no easy feat!

I planned and tinkered, whipped, baked and toasted;

marshmallowed, frosted, flambeed and roasted.

But Santa, I simply could not do it alone,

I needed someone with skills that exceeded my own.

There was only one other workshop I knew was a win;

it belongs to Chef Branlard at the Swan and Dolphin.

World Champion Pastry Chef, not once but TWICE won;

he knew how to handle chocolate by the ton!

I was so excited it got my toes curling

and we quickly set to chocolate twirling and whirling.

Chef Laurent Branlard dreamed of a fireplace glowing,

where Santa could play with his train and wrap presents for stowing.

500 hours and 6 million calories later

we’d used dark, milk and white chocolate by the freighter!

1800 pounds makes this a sight to behold;

see how the Nutcracker shimmers with gold!

This has been the most fun since the reindeer games last fall;

until next year’s visit, Merry Christmas to all!

Wishing you sugar & spice and everything nice!

Your friend,

Kandy Kane
