They sell sheets called Chocolate transfer sheets. You cut the sheets and poor the chocolate on the sheet. When the chocolate set up just enough to mold but not crack (dull sheen) then you wrap it around and pull the sheet off. The ones I did(see my photos) have designs on them so I'm not sure if you can get them plain or not. They sell the decorated ones at www.FancyFlours.com (they also have directions on their site with pictures)
You could use wax paper and poor the chocolate on that. It would be even if you cut it straight.

Acetate is just sheet plastic. It's much more sturdy than paper, but nearly as thin. You can find it at art supply, graphic arts supply, or office supply stores. Many fine art paper companies sell it in pads (with sheets of tracing paper in between each plastic sheet). I doubt baking paper would be sturdy enough with the weight of the chocolate. You could check online to see who might sell it in your area. Good luck!

I think this would also work just fine on parchment paper too.

If you go to our website and click on cakes, there is a chocolate cake we did with a white chocolate wrap around it in a frilly design. We put fondant on the cake. Then we measured the acetate to fit around the cake. Then we took white chocolate in a plastic bottle and just started making swirly designs on the acetate. After it dried a bit (about 3 minutes) we then picked up the acetate and wrapped it around the cake. We taped the two ends together and let it chill in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes. After taking it out of the refrigerator, we then carefully untaped the acetate and peeled it away from the cake.
