Basket of chocolates

I was asked to make a birthday cake for a lady. As it was close to valentine's day I thought it would be rather sweet to make a basket of chocolates. The brown sugarpaste actually tastes of chocolate and the cake itself is chocolate flavoured. I used chocolate magic sparkles between the chocolates and on the numbers too but you can't really appreciate them in this photograph. When the cake is under a light they look lovely. I made a gift tag for her name and dried it over some foam to give it some shape. I made an icing cord and bow to attach it to the side of the basket. This way she can eat the chocolates and the cake too, double the treat!
