Colourful – Unique – Handmade
Hello, I’m Leslie and I’m the Owner, Chocolatier and Cake Designer at Bon Chocolat.
Being mostly Self-taught I’m always finding new (and sometimes strange) combinations to tantalise your taste buds and create beautiful chocolates and cakes. I started in the Confectionery Industry back when I was 16, when I had a weekend job at Le Salon Du Chocolat in Sussex. Little did I know back then that I would come to run my own Confectionery business in the future.
Bon Chocolat started in 2016 with Chocolate Fountain Hire, covering East Anglia and beyond, but what I really wanted to be doing was creating stunning, tasty chocolates and cakes. So the business quickly expanded.
In addition to my handmade chocolates (available online and at events across East Anglia), I have three main services:
Bespoke Speciality cakes – Make lasting memories with a bespoke cake, hand-decorated cakes using luxurious Chocolate, silky Buttercream and velvety Ganache for any occasion. Perfect for the Chocoholic in your life.
Favours – The perfect accompaniment to coffee, a party gift bag or table setting, this is my bespoke favour service. Here I work with you to create chocolates to accompany your event, whether that’s hand-rolled Belgian truffles, galaxy-inspired salted caramels or Ruby Chocolate roses, the possibilities are almost endless.
Chocolate Fountain Hire – Available all year round, my chocolate fountain can be hired separately (with chocolate) or with a dipping foods bar. It’s the perfect addition to any celebration in my opinion and like everything else I do, you can include your favourite foods to dip i.e. strawberries, marshmallows etc.
