Hi! I'm new to baking so I hope I'll learn from everyone here!!
My good friend's birthday is coming up and I found this picture of a beautiful cake a Hong Kong celebrity made and posted on her blog. It was her first time making it so I thought I could do the same! Why not right?
But I don't know how she made the pink things on the very top? It looks like candy to me but I'm not sure. Can someone tell me what they are and how I can make them? I tried going to bakeries and ask but they vaguely told me to melt chocolate and peel them off...
greatly appreciate the comments!!!
It is chocolate curls. There is a tutorial on here I think that shows how to do it. If you can't find it just put your chocolate in the fridge and then shave it with a vegetable peeler. You may have to play with the temperature to get it to peel good though because it has to be just right not to hot and not to cold but you should be able to do it just fine. Be sure to post a pic too.
They look like chocolate curls, white chocolate with pink food coloring. Usually you make chocolate curls by running a vegetable peeler over a slightly warmed chocolate bar.
I'm not too sure but they look like chocolate curls to me. If you melt some white chocolate and put a little pink colouring in it, let it dry in a loaf tin or something square or rectangular. When it's fully set use a peeler to get the curl effect. Hope that made sense!
oh my! thank you for all the comments! I realllly appreciate it! I'll be sure to give it a try!
