Evelyn Day - Extreme Chocolate Maker

Extreme chocolate maker

Hi – I’m Evelyn Day – a Brighton-based chocolate artist. I’ve been passionate about chocolate all my life and I’ve found a way to translate that passion into (incr)edible art!

Inspired by my love of travel and architecture I make unique and extreme chocolate sculptures for memorable events bringing joy to chocolate lovers around the world.

I’ve recently appeared on a number of episodes of Channel 4’s Extreme Chocolate Makers. It’s a lighthearted behind-the-scenes TV series showcasing extreme chocolate makers in the United Kingdom.

The Chocolate House is open!

We’re delighted to announce our first ever Chocolate Artists Open House!

After many years of talking and dreaming about it – we’ve finally opened our doors to the public for the 2019 Brighton Artists Open House. Come and meet Evelyn in her amazing chocolate studio – where many of her spectacular showpieces and sculptures are on display.

Ev will be running demo workshops most days and will be making chocolate products to order on the day. There may even be some chocolate on hand to sample too!

We’re also hosting seven other fabulously talented artists – so there’s plenty of lovely art, ceramics and prints to see and buy.

And what would an open house be if we didn’t have our own chocolate cafe as well? Come and taste some of Ev’s amazing cakes – and enjoy it with a lovely cup of tea, coffee or homemade hot chocolate!.

We’re open every weekend in MaySaturday and Sundays from 11am to 5pm as well as the Bank holiday on Monday 27th May – there’s plenty of free parking and we’re only a short walk away from the 5B bus).

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m often asked a number of questions about my chocolate creations, which I thought could be useful. If you can’t see the answer to a question you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Do you deliver your chocolate sculptures?

Yes absolutely. Delivery within Brighton & Hove is free, further afield is charged at £15 per hour plus travel costs such as petrol.

How much do you charge for your chocolate work?

My daily rate is £200, there are additional costs such as materials and ingredients.

How long do your sculptures take to make?

My bespoke chocolate showpieces generally take anything from two to 14 days depending on its complexity and size. I can often work to a clients’ budgets by tailoring the design, scale and complexity.

How long do your chocolate sculptures last?

The Belgian couverture chocolate I use has long best before dates – up to 18 months for dark chocolate. If you’re commissioning a sculpture to keep it will last indefinitely kept in the right conditions – away from sunlight and other heat sources. Beautiful clear acrylic covers can be made to measure for keep and display purposes.

Do you make Cakes?

Yes, I do make cakes. And amazingly tasty ones too! My signature chocolate cake is legendary and always goes down well at celebrations and events.

I usually make the cakes separately from the showpiece in order to make the cake easier to transport, cut and serve whilst ensuring that the showpiece’s design isn’t compromised by having to base it around a cake.

However, on request, I can also design your sculpture to incorporate a cake into the stand that the showpiece sits on.

Clients may also provide their own cake if they prefer, so long as it doesn’t have to form part of the showpiece.

I’d love to hear from you!
