For the past two seasons we’ve done cakes just for celebrities but this series we decided we would step away from that and go for real stories, and real cakes for real events. Choccywoccydoodah's chocolate geniuses are found in their Brighton based Mothership, where artists, designers and sculptors create extraordinary confections to commission. The best lesson I've learnt through running my business is that I can't please everybody so I'm not going to waste my time trying.

I am Abbey, a little bit of the team that makes up the Sugalily design studio, which is based in Derby, right in the middle of England.One cake can easily take forty hours, with chocolate you have to work really quickly otherwise it melts in your hands. We’ve resisted creating a cookbook for the last 20 years and finally we found a publisher who understands our world of stories, spells, cake, chocolate and curses. Tim Burton is familiar with our work and he approached me through Warner Brothers to see what we could do for the film. It is a story book of recipes where Christine and her Doodahs share their own personal chocolate and cake favourites in addition to stories behind the world famous Rocky Road recipe and the Nuns Naughty Secrets.

Towering chocolate cakes, giant lollies and other surreal creations are an integral part of the magical chocolate factory set. Administrators Quantuma were appointed when the business went into voluntary liquidation, and said this was due to a “challenging trading environment, increased costs and declining margins”. I loved just having no responsibilities and throwing glitter on people and giving them too much chocolate. First of all this is a really luxurious looking book, and left on a coffee table I think it would draw anyone nearby to flick through the beautifully presented pages.Skill Level: Easy (there is a lot of easy to follow explanation in the pattern instructions so all you really need to be able to do is to knit and purl. This listing is for a knitting pattern for you to use to make covers just like the samples shown in the photograph. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. My name is Christine Taylor (that’s me in the top middle of the photo above), I am the Creative Director of Choccywoccydoodah.

It is not only the back ground story and lovely stories in general about Choccywoccydoodah included in this lovely “cooking - and baking book” but the personal pictures and the layout of the pages with near handwriting letters that makes the book a real joy to look at. The cakes and what the sculptors have been able to do with chocolate has developed over the years and the Christines developed the way to sculpt the chocolate the way that we do it and that’s our closely guarded secret that nobody knows. Mindbender Derren Brown asked the team to a design him a magical birthday cake featuring a secret illusion.The crazy creations of team – affectionately known as the Doodahs – displayed proudly in the Meeting House Lane window are now a must-see for every tourist to the city. Tourists, fans, chocolate lovers and aspiring Doodahs from all over the world pilgrimage to both the Mothership and Flagship to satiate their appetite for cake, chocolate and Choccywoccydoodah. They are eccentric, eclectic, proper bohemian, forgiving if they like you, supportive if they understand you and tough as old boots if you don’t measure up. Imagine reading Grimm’s tale of Hansel and Grettel with a recipe for the gingerbread house at the end. The stories and small personal recipes you find throughout make it much more than any normal cook book, entertaining and useful.

Intends to celebrate all things chocolate and cake from a team that have dedicated their lives to being joy-makers and cake-bakers. The recipes themselves all look wonderfully enticing, and range in complexity from the ridiculously easy 'Banana Split' to the much more intimidating 'Choccy Chestnut Roulade'.

We’ve got a baker and his assistant and they bake all the cakes, so it’s not just the making of the front it’s quite a lot of time doing anything. There are about 40 of us now, all working together, enjoying what we do, making chocolate, creating cakes, selling chocolate, selling cakes and of course, we all eat chocolate and cake.Accordingly, as a sale has not been concluded, the goodwill now vests with the directors personally. On the other side, the guys in the studio and how they are making them, and making sure they’re making them right.
