Chocolate Academy™ Turkey Celebrates Viva Magenta

Chocolate Academy™ Turkey Celebrates Viva Magenta

Text: "Color of the year 2023: Pantone/Viva Magenta" on a striking magenta background

According to Pantone™, their Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, “is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying, and a boundaryless shade that is manifesting as a stand-out statement.” To Chef Nihan Soyturk at our Chocolate Academy™ Center in Turkey, this sounded like the perfect match for Mona Lisa® Power Flowers™: “You have endless color alternatives with Power Flowers™, and it is very easy to achieve and apply.”

The color reminded me of spring sunsets and flowers.

Spring Sunset Bonbons

For the sunset-inspired design, I wanted to create the illusion of sky inside and out, so I used coconut in two different forms: coconut ganache and coconut marzipan.

Lemon-Cassis Flower

For the flower-inspired design, I did lemon and cassis flavors.
