Western Plains Caribou

Western Plains Caribou

A 100% Chocolate Sculpture, by Leif Edlyn

Caribou, deer and elk have always been some of my favourite Canadian wildlife.

I’ve always loved walking through the forest and stumbling across a deer who stares right back at you.

Every year caribou shed their antlers and grow a whole new set.

After such a crazy year in 2020 I remind myself that everything changes and we’ll all get through this. I chose to model this set of antlers after the newly grown antlers, still covered in velvet.

This was my most challenging chocolate sculpture to date. I knew the antlers of this caribou would push my skills as a chocolatier and force me out of my comfort zone. I’m very proud of this one and I’m excited to keep creating more challenging pieces in the future.
