I'm curious to know this:

I've seen several cakes with snowflakes made from white chocolate, how do you make the chocolate to pipe? Is it just white chocolate bark melted and then placed in a piping bag or is there something else added to it. icon_redface.gif


TIA,



TY

I just use the plain melted chocolate for my stuff. Just be sure to use a small tip or is using diposable bags to cut the hole small!

I've never made the snowflakes yet, but thats exactly how I have piped chocolate before....just melt & put it in the bag. You need to be careful though because unlike frosting, it will "ooz" out the bottom so just keep the bag tilted up a little when you're not using it. If it starts to harden up on you, just take the metal tip off & put it in the microwave for 5 second intervals.

yep, just like they said. I keep a paper towel next to me to wipe the tip off once in a while because I tend to get it all mucked up.
