3 Ways to Make Chocolate Decorations | Cake Decorating

So I’m going to take my chocolate that’s already
tempered and that’s just cooled down, and I’m going to put a little bit of it right
onto my acetate sheet, my transfer sheet, and just take a small offset spatula and just
spread it. You’re looking for a very thin layer, not
too thin that it will break, but just thin enough. Imagine like a piece of thin brittle like
a candy. Just spread it all over. What I’ll do is pop this in the fridge once
I’ve spread it out really nice and thinly, and it’ll set up within, I’d say, five, ten
minutes, you’ll have a really nice sheet of chocolate to work off of. You don’t have to fuss too much with it. Just make sure it’s nice and even. And one is ready to go. Now, for the other I’m going to make a little
bit of like a chocolate squiggly design. So, I’m going to take a little bit of my chocolate
right into my cornet and you can see it just goes right to the bottom. I’m going to take it and fold it over, and
I have a really cute little cone. This is also great if you want to write people’s
names on birthday cakes. You just write happy birthday with the little
chocolate cone. Just snip the tip and you can go as wide or
as kind of small as you want to. All I’m going to do is just make cute little
kind of squiggly designs. When they’re set I’m going to break these
up and put them in shards kind of on top of my cake. It’s going to be really beautiful lace to
put around. So easy, incredibly easy, but it looks really
cool. So that’s it for that. You want to do enough that it’s not going
to break on you, so a good layer of squiggle, a very technical term. That is it. So, all of these chocolate designs I’m going
to pop in the fridge or the freezer until they’re nice and firm and set. Then I’ll take them off of these transfer
sheets and put them on some cakes, and you’ll see some really beautiful designs.

  1. show us how to finish! I was watching the video where you put the chocolate on a design sheet and the other you made chocolate squiggles. You kept saying how cute it was going to be and you never showed how to finish it. I searched for a 1/2 hour and found nothing. ..very disappointed!!!!! sorry to say, but most of the videos you post are like that :(((

  2. i am very intersted in knowing what you made with these very thin chocolate spreads. im not a baker and cant even imagine what these thkngs turned into or were used for. can you respond and let us know? i love your videos, but please dont forget that most who watch this need complete step bynstep with the end product displayed to fully understand. ty:)

  3. I did not think the finished product was that great considering the corrugated metal and everything else Rodriguez had to work with.
