Brocche Fondenti, Chocolate Nails

View all 8 Photos

They nailed it! Chocolate! Really, truly they have us totally figured out. The Brocche Fondenti Chocolate Nails by Monica Maggi, Pippo Marino and Giangi Caffio are a delectable chocolate design involving our two most greatest loves: dessert and backpacking. It’s an ode to the brocca which is an Italian nail used for hiking boots handmade at  Valle di Ledro. Their heads can decorate a cake top, its pointed end plunges into the layers beneath the frosting. Yum!

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
