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 wonderful chocolate sculptures for memorable events. Now you can also buy Chocadyllic products bringing joy to chocolate lovers around the world.

In 2019 I featured 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.

You can still catch up on all the Channel 4 shows here on All 4.

A look behind the scenes

A wonderful video made by Mi Elf Vision.

People often ask me how I started working in chocolate and how Chocadyllic started. In this amazing video Mi Elfverson asks all 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. I hope you enjoy them!

 

CoronaVirus and Chocolate

One of the things I love most about what I do is the joy I see when clients received their chocolates. 

By practising excellent food safety standards Chocadyllic has remained open. Making the most of the time during lockdown I created some new products. Now you can buy unique chocolates from the safety and comfort of your home. The delicious and wonderful chocolates make wonderful gifts and can be delivered, posted or collected from the Chocadyllic HQ in West Hove. They will be presented in simple and beautiful eco-friendly packaging, boxed securely for postage, and slim enough to be posted through letterboxes.

These new chocolates are easily available to one and all so everyone can enjoy a little piece of Chocadyllic regardless of what is going on out there.

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?

I like to work with my clients’ budgets so do get in touch and we can plan your very own special chocolate showpiece to fit your requirements.

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.

Ingredients

I use the best quality Belgian couverture chocolate to create my products and sculptures. Here is the list of ingredients for you, just in case you want to know. Yes, dark chocolate is vegan and dairy-free.

Dark chocolate contains: cocoa solids 52.9 % minimum, sugar 46.0%; cocoa mass 42.5%; cocoa butter 10.5%; emulsifier: soya lecithin <1%; natural vanilla flavouring <1%
