I have never made a cake where it looks like chocolate is running down the side of the cake.
Do you use ganache to do that? Or chocolate almond bark?

I put a photo of a sample below, so you can see what I'm talking about.
How do you make the chocolate look like it's running down the edges?

Usually one uses ganache. If you used straight almond bark it would get hard. It takes some practice to get it right - don't expect it to be perfect the 1st timeicon_smile.gif

You can also use melted choc. icing that you buy in the plastic containers, it works great!
