Morse Toad, the chocolate and the frog*

On first discovering personalised chocolate company Morse Toad, the tale of the Princess and the Frog immediately sprang to mind. Morse Toad, famed for their creamy Belgian chocolate,
along with their unique amphibian mascot, is a tastier take on one of my favourite fairytales.
I made this red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream from a Betty Crocker recipe; it's one of my favourite desserts of all time and the personalised chocolates made perfect toppings to decorate with afterwards. I managed to fit 'Ice Cream Clara' on top before devouring the rest of the letters. I would love to recreate this with a special message for my mum's birthday in August.
The boxes are a perfect size to fit in your letterbox, meaning the recipient of the box will find it nestled amongst their mail and won't have to trek down the post office to receive it! 

I found ordering my personalised message very easy and it's such fun selecting little designs like hearts and stars to frame your message. You can even choose a little photo to be framed inside your box! I chose a snap of the roses I photographed last month in Regents Park. 
In all honesty this was my first attempt at making sculptable icing, from the recipe here. It turned out well and I successfully constructed a lily pad and pink flowers using different food colourings, however they ended up a little taken over by the many chocolate letters!
The chocolate itself is incredible: creamy, decadent and melt in your mouth. I love that there's so many things you can do with the letters, they make a lovely gift in their own little box, or the perfect finishing touch to any kind of special occasion cake. Head over to Morse Toad here to create your own message in chocolate! What is your favourite dessert?

  1. That looks delicious! Good for you for making it yourself! :) I'm not a huge fan of cake so I tend to make other things for dessert. The last dessert I last made was earl grey panna cotta following this recipe. It turned out pretty well!

  20. Wow that cake looks beyond delicious and it was interesting to hear about the chocolate company, what a lovey idea for gifting. Those chocolate letters sound so yummy and it made me smile when you said you devoured the left over letters beforehand. I’m a big chocoholic so my favourite dessert is anything with chocolate. Brownies are one of my favs, although I like most sweet things with being a sweet tooth. Lovely post and hope you are having a nice Saturday so far! :-) xx
