Handcrafted Queen Yuna Chocolate

Updated on September 24, 2014

Figure Skating Queen Kim Yuna celebrated her twenty-fourth birthday on September 5, 2014. In East Asian age reckoning, she is considered to be twenty-five years old, since the day of her birth is counted as one years old as opposed to one day old in the west. In honor of her birthday, handcrafted chocolate of her various signature skating poses and moves were made by Piaf Artisan Chocolatier of Seoul, South Korea, in conjunction with her fan club(s). These sweet treats with her graceful silhouette emblazoned on milk and dark chocolate pieces look absolutely divine. Too delicious to eat. A lovely, elegant gift suited for figure skating royalty. Hope Yuna was able to enjoy them now since she is retired from competitive skating.
