I have a bride that wants a 3 tiered round stacked wedding cake and wants to have white chocolate shavings all over the cake. Any ideas how to get the shavings or where to buy them??
Also best idea to get them onto the buttercream and get them to stay???
Easiest way to make them: Buy blocks of white chocolate (Trader Joe's sells Ghiardelli that way). Warm the chocolate between your hands for a minute (while still wrapped in plastic wrap of course), then use a sharp vegetable peeler to make the shavings. I find it's easiest to do it over a sheet of parchment paper.
Not so sure about getting them to stick on the sides of the cake - I usually pipe rosettes around the top of the cake then carefully "pour" or spoon the shavings into the areas that I want them on the top.
I have to put white chocolate shavings on a cake this weekend, and have never done this before, either. What if you can't find big blocks of chocolate? I thought about melting down white chocolate and pouring it into a bread pan to make a 'block' to shave. Anyone ever try this? I'm keeping my fingers crossed...
Las Vegas Gourmet and Albert Uster sell them but I imaging they are spendy and come in large quantities. Search chocolate shavings or chocolate curls. I know they have some cute pink and white ones somewhere.
Found this one googling.
