Chocolate and champagne fountains
Professional chocolate and champagne fountains have been very popular over recent years particularly at wedding functions, special occasions and parties. Function organisers often require that the fountains are prepared, setup and sometimes manned, so you may need to look at whether or not to hire out direct to the function organiser or to only caterers etc. All fountains are electric powered, sizes start from around 50cmx30cm wide, the tiers are removable and dismantle for easy cleaning plus they require and hold a large amount of chocolate around 10lbs for the size above.

General advice and tips
All fun food equipment is available as standalone pieces of equipment and placed on their own can sometimes look uninteresting and uninviting. Many suppliers offer attractive colourful carts and stalls to compliment and mount the equipment. This is well worth considering as it will add more novelty fun food appeal to potential hirers who will prefer a professional finished look.
Important note: Some fun food equipment will need to be supplied with the end food product so consideration will need to given to food safety, storage and transportation. Read more about food safety under mobile catering.
