Fancy eating a shoe made of chocolate?
When you have shoes and chocolates, what more can a woman ask for? Phorum Dalal says they are reason enough to indulge
Farzana Mehta had her Eureka moment when she realised that the easiest way to a woman’s heart was through chocolates and shoes. So the owner of Choco Fiesta simply married the two to create chunky chocolates in the shape of shoes.
For: Rs 250 for a dozen
At: Tart Bakery, Shop number 9, Hill Road, Bandra or Vongwong, 1st floor, Express Towers, Nariman point.

“Bridal showers, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays or just like that, these shoe chocolates are flying off the shelf,” she says, adding that she imported a custom-made mould to create the shoe shape.
For: Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,400.
At: Choco Fiesta, near Agripada Police Station.
“It takes nearly four hours to make this chocolate, as first you have to paint the intricate design on the mould and then pour the chocolate and keep it for setting. I use a combination of white, dark and brown chocolate. So if there is any mistake, there is a possibility that the outcome will be messy.”
We’ll admit, we were craving for more. So, we tracked other bakeries and shops that would give us more shoe bites.
