Does chocolate hold up as well as the Royal icing when making a tiara? Do you just use melted white chocolate?

I have made tiaras but only with RI. I wish I would have thought of chocolate, it would taste so much better. I think you should be able to do it using the chocolate. May be a little more fragile, but then again the RI is very fragile. Try using clear acetate sheet, pipe it on like chocolate transfer only not a mirror image. Since you won't be flipping it. Would love to know how it turns out. Good luck.

Are you free-handing it or are you using a template?

I would definitely use RI, if you make the tiara strong enough you will be able to handle it without it breaking. (I have a cake in my photos with a RI tiara)

Chocolate would make me nervous, once you hold it for to long it's going to start to melt in your hand.

The tiara I made was with RI. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I agree with Ladivacrj, if you hold the chocolate too long it could start melting or at least soften which would compromise the structure. Plus the recepient could keep it for a while.

I have only made one tiara and it was made out of white chocolate. I also used edible pearls as embellishment. I went with chocolate because I wanted it to be a tasty edible decoration. I think both work, just have to make your own preference!
Best of luck!

We made a white chocolate tiara using chocolate coating for an event that was cancelled. We did it free-hand and had created little loops to put dragees in. It worked well! We just wish we could have completed it.
