A step-by-step guide to creating 3D chocolate lollipops we call LOLpops

In this blog post, we take you behind the scenes to explore the science behind our process and showcase how our technology brings your selfie to life in delicious detail.

Step 1: 3D Scan and Crop

The journey begins with a 3D scan of the guest's face. Our advanced scanning technology captures the intricate details, ensuring a lifelike representation. However, we understand the importance of maintaining privacy and discretion. That's why we carefully crop and save the scan, ensuring that only the essential elements are used to create the perfect fit on the lollipop.

Step 2: G-Code Creation and Automation

Once the scan is captured, our proprietary software kicks into action. The data is processed in the cloud, where our algorithms generate the precise instructions for carving the chocolate. This process, known as generating G-code, ensures that every contour and feature of the guest's face is accurately reproduced.

Step 3: Loading the Candy Carve Machine

The face file, along with the generated G-code, is then loaded onto our Candy Carve machine. This automated marvel is designed specifically for our unique process. The machine features a quick and simple loading system, allowing our operators to prepare it with a clamping system that securely holds the chocolate in place.


Step 4: Touch Screen Experience and Countdown

As the machine is prepared, the guest is guided through the next steps via an intuitive touch screen experience. Starting the machine triggers a countdown, building anticipation for the sweet reveal. The efficient and streamlined design of our technology ensures that the process is quick and seamless, taking only a few minutes to transform chocolate into a personalised masterpiece.

Step 5: Finishing Touches Once the carving is complete, it's time for the finishing touches. Excess chocolate is carefully removed, leaving behind the intricately carved chocolate face. To enhance the details and add a touch of elegance, the face is dusted with a delicate gold lustre. This brings out the subtle contours and highlights the unique features, making the chocolate lollipop a true work of art.

Step 6: Picture and Packaging Voila: The final step in our process is to capture a picture of the chocolate masterpiece. This picture serves as a cherished memento for the guest and a delightful memory of the experience. The chocolate lollipop is then carefully packaged, complete with a branded insert and box, ready to be savoured or shared as a special gift.

From the precision of 3D scanning to the artistry of chocolate carving, each step in our process is meticulously crafted to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail. So, next time you visit one of our 3D Chocolate Selfie Stations, immerse yourself in the magic of technology and share a picture of your chocolate Selfie. #Lolpop #The3dChocolateselfiestation
