I have an order for a cake and 80 colored dipped strawberries. Do I need to do anything different to white chocolate to use for a dip on these strawberries? If I do them the day before, will they be okay? Should I store them in the fridge or at room temp? Thanks!

I am getting nervous since this is my first time doing those. Can anyone help?

You can color the chocolate but it doesn't have as strong as a color as candy melts. I prefer to do the strawberries the day of and put them directly on the cake so it sticks better. However, if you need to do them before hand make sure that they are put into the fridge and not left out at room temp. (They may ooze a little, but hopefully they will not)

if you add 2 tbs spoons of veg shortening to your chocolate, it will make it smooth, i tried that on this past weekends cake, they turned out fantastic!

I make quite a few covered strawberries. You can even make the bridal gown using cornelli lace on them. I have spoken w/large scale caterers,(restaurant caterers) and they have advised: always make the strawberries the day of the event and keep them in a cool dry place. Never in the fridge. They will ooze and can discolor the white chocolate.

Ditto. Also, if you use Ghirardelli or Merckens White Chocolate it melts perfectly and dips wonderfully. No vegetable oil needed.
