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?

You can use ganache OR youc an melt chocolate chips with some shortening to drizzle down the sides icon_smile.gif

Melt your chocolate.. or take your ganache and put it in a uncut piping bag (no tip) when you are getting ready to drizzle down the sides cut the tip off and pinch with your finger... make little m shapes down the edge of your cake icon_smile.gif

I just seen a you tube video on this and I'll try to find it for you icon_smile.gif
