And with the Perth Royal Show just around the corner, Fremantle Chocolate owner Andrew Wyers is looking forward to showing customers his award-winning treats. Mr Wyers recently received the news that 12 of his delectable delights had won awards including the prized Chocolate Show Piece.
‘We are really excited to win 12 awards and have won 50 awards over the last eight years,’ Mr Wyers said.
‘Our chocolatiers love the opportunity to create and compete in this competition and we are very proud of their wonderful masterpieces.’
Mr Wyers said his take on the Mad Hatter’s tea party was inspired by its random playfulness.
‘We wanted to encapsulate the essence of the tea party by placing cushions, tea-pots, china plates and small desserts scattered around to create a glamorous gathering,’ he said.
‘The crazy print on the abstract hat was used to emphasise the theatre of the piece and the flowers are used to highlight the garden high teas of the Victorian era.’
Having worked in the industry since 2006 alongside family members, including his father who started the business in 1999, Mr Wyers said visitors to the Perth Royal Show pavilions could expect to see a range of chocolate treats and truffles as well as the prized chocolate Mad Hatter tea party.
The Perth Royal Show is on from September 28 to October 5.
