Children Baking with Chocolate
Chocolat Sucard, or Chocolate Sugar, is the front label on this great French Chocolate advertising card. The vintage advertising art shows three children, dressed up as proper bakers with chefs hats and chefs aprons. These children are in their Victorian kitchen, working with chocolate around the old-fashioned table. The little girl is sitting on the floor in the front, grating her chocolate. The boy baker on the right is reading recipes from his chocolate cookbook. The boy chef on the left is opening a packet of chocolate bars, all ready to eat, but we know all good bakers really do use their chocolate to bake cakes and other chocolate goodies, and they really don't eat the chocolate until it's well baked. The background décor is very ornate Victorian swirling patterns, with a blue and white plate taking over the background, and swirls of blue, white, and brown throughout the background of this vintage advertising image. The children are dressed in blue, green, red, and white.
