Father’s Day 2022

What to get your dad for Father’s Day this year? How about a breakable chocolate t-shirt with his favourite club colours?

They make the perfect gift for dad, and they’re big enough to share, if you’re lucky! They’re also an amazing fun experience – watch dad smash his chocolate t-shirt open with a mini chocolate hammer to reveal lots more chocolate goodies.

Preorder today to secure one for your dad from the Chocolate Shop here.

Clients

I’m delighted to share with you that Chocadyllic has a brand new client! The wonderful CI Liquor Company. I have created two new chocolates that blend perfectly with their delicious Indica Spiced Rum. You can buy them directly from their distillery on South Pier, St Helier. Soon available from the Chocolate shop here.

I have had the pleasure and joy to create chocolates and chocolate sculptures for many lovely clients including but not limited to:

Sony, Brighton Royal Pavilion, the London Chocolate Festival, the Trading Point, Homefields, Kiki’s Jersey, Harriet & Rose, the Moorings, the Mayfair and Hawksford.

Extreme chocolate maker

Hi – I’m Evelyn Day – I’m a chocolate architect located in the beautiful island of Jersey. I’ve been passionate about chocolate all my life and I’ve found a way to translate that passion into (incr)edible art!

I featured on three episodes (2, 3 and 10) of Channel 4’s Extreme Chocolate Makers. You can watch the show on All 4 and Netflix. 

I was also filmed for a Channel 5 documentary called “The Wonderful World of Chocolate” for a commission for the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. You can watch me making it in Season3.Episode3.

A look behind the scenes

People often ask me how I started working in chocolate and how Chocadyllic started. This video asks those questions and more.

You can also see The Making of the Thai Shrine in Chocolate on my YouTube channel.

I’d love to know what you think, so please comment on the videos.

Frequently Asked Questions

People often want to know more about my chocolate creations. Pease don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any more questions. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

How much notice do you need?

Everything is handmade to order making each one unique. This takes time and means no two pieces are alike. Please take a look at the product information for how much notice an order will need. I usually post out orders once a week. Urgent requests can be accommodated for an additional charge.

 

How long do postal orders take?

Jersey post takes approximately 1-3 days. Post to the UK usually takes 3-5 days however the impact of the pandemic on postal services means it can take up to two weeks. There is an option to pay extra for a tracked and traced service.

Do you deliver your chocolate sculptures?

Yes, chocolate sculptures are delivered for free in Jersey.

How much do you charge for your chocolate art?

My standard charges are £25 per hour or £250 per day. This includes all the materials and ingredients and is based on the expertise and knowledge I have gained over the last 10 years of working with chocolate. 

Pieces can take anything from 2 hours to 5 or more days and depends on the design, size and number of elements. 

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I’d be very happy to discuss your requirements. 

How long do your sculptures take to make?

The amount of time it takes to make a chocolate showpiece depends on the size and design of the creation. The smaller and simpler pieces take around 2-3 hours whilst the large showpieces can take 5 days or more. The very large pieces can take 3-4 weeks. I can often work to clients’ budgets by tailoring the design, scale and complexity.

How long do your chocolate sculptures last?

I use the best possible Belgian couverture chocolate which has long best before dates. Dark chocolate can last for up to 18 months. One of my chocolate sculptures can keep for years if you wanted to keep it on show. You will need to keep it in the right conditions – away from sunlight and other heat sources. I can also provide beautiful clear acrylic covers for display purposes.

Do you make cakes?

I make the most delicious and tasty cakes, even if I say so myself! My signature chocolate cake is legendary and always goes down well at celebrations and events. It is a Genuine Jersey product. 

I make the cakes in three different sizes; small (serves 8-10 people), medium (16-20 people), or large (28-40 people).

Additionally I tend to make the cakes separately from the chocolate showpieces. This way neither the taste of the cake or the chocolate sculpture is compromised. However, on request, I can also design your sculpture to incorporate a cake into the plinth for the showpiece to sit on.
Clients can provide their own cake if they prefer, so long as it doesn’t have to form part of the showpiece.

Ingredients

It is very important to me that what I create tastes as good as it looks. I use the best quality ingredients including local Jersey produce and high quality Belgian couverture chocolate. The dark chocolate is vegan. You can see the ingredients in each of the products listings. I also use biodegradable packaging wherever possible.

Allergies

Ingredients are listed for each product with allergens highlighted in bold. Before ordering, please discuss any concerns you have with regards to food allergies or intolerances.

I’d love to hear from you!
