Some people might say there’s an age at which adults who are not parents should cease to go trick-or-treating. I say: 1) Get a full-body costume that covers each and every post-pubescent pore OR 2) Stay in and make your own luxurious customized chocolates. For those who choose the latter, there is French designer, Elsa Lambinet‘s (conceptual) Sweet Station.
The idea behind sweet play is pretty straightforward. A modular design allows for three types of chocolate that can support two added ingredients: black chocolate has a hole to contain fruit, milk chocolate has spaces for nuts, and white chocolate is surfaced to hold liquids, and all three contain a hallowed compartment for inserted flavored wafers, perhaps nougat or carmel. Participants get to mix and match ingredients for hours and hours as they gorge themselves on custom confectionery goodness.
Although the DIY designer chocolates earned Lambinet her Masters, it has yet to find a backer to make it real. Come on people!
