you could drape it over the bottle as it is cooling so that it will dry the same shape and fit perectly.

i was thinking maybe that but thought the chocolate might run. have you done one before???

I have not but I am sure it can be done. Chocolate sets pretty fast but should stay pliable for a bit. I would let it sit just long enough so it is soft but not runny.

do a test run. Just take some choc and put it on som wax paper and see how it works.

I really don't know. I don't know how well it freezes or if it would pull away clean from the wax paper. You could experiment...get a few tubes and squeeze a simple design on wax paper, freeze and see what happens.

well on my spiderman i did last weekend we used black on the buildings and we froze them. it froze really well. its the wax paper that worries me. whats the worst that could happen if i try and it doesnt work?? i think i will try it. i will let you guys know how it goes. wish me luck with this as it will be my first bct ever. let alone trying soemthing we arent sure will even work.
