le Petit Prince Brings Back Whimsical Chocolate Creations

BIRMINGHAM (WWJ) – A small bakery in Birmingham could be mistaken for the Easter Bunny’s work shop at this time of year. At le Petit Prince, owner Yvette Didierjean and her family spend weeks hand painting unique chocolate molds.

“Seven to eight weeks before we start to be ready, four weeks a month before we start, everything should be displayed,” said Didierjean.

The whimsical chocolate creations are one of a kind.

“We start always with the black color to make the center of the eye … because each color needs to be dry before we go to the other one, we can have a set of 10 or 15,” said Didierjean.

Prices start at $8 but can run as high as $300 for rabbits that are nearly two feet tall and filled with colorful details.
