I can not remember who made this (sorry) but it was beautiful. What they did was have a choc cake as the base and then a truffle tree on the top of the cake. I just want to make the tree. I know or think I do to use a styrofoam tree shape but how do you or what do you poke into the truffle that will hold it up on the tree? Will certain fillings work better than others?
Normal ganache fillings will work fine. You can place them on toothpicks that have been placed in the styrofoam or they can be attached with melted choc but this takes more time and is less stable. They sell cone shaped styrofoam at most craft stores.
Thank you. I wasnt sure if the tooth picks would hold them properly. I am going to have to try this.
I do recommend placing your toothpicks into the styrofoam first then place your truffles otherwise they might end up squished and could melt from the heat of your hands.
