huh?!?!?!??!

. "a hardened, meltable candy coating over a portion of said strawberry including the apex of said strawberry opposite said stem end, said coating comprising partially overlapping layers of said candy forming partially overlapped candy shells, the boundary line between the overlap of said shells running diagonally across said strawberry, said shells being positioned and colored, in combination with a remaining uncoated portion of said strawberry at said strawberry's pith and, to be sufficient to impart a folded, petal-like appearance to said strawberry, and further, in combination, with said wrapped skewer, to simulate a long-stemmed rose bud.



The simulated long-stemmed rose bud of claim 1 wherein at least one of said candy shells has a boundary line disposed at roughly 30 degrees to a common axis of said strawberry and said skewer. "


ok is it just me or does no one else understand this?

LOL!! Well, what I get from that is to use candy melts. Start with the pointy part of the berry, then do diagonal stripes around the berry, overlapping as you go so that it builds up as petals would. (I assume you'd have to let each stripe set before you applied the next one?) You should then insert a wrapped skewer at a 30 degree angle.

Im assuming you get two bowls of melted chocolate (and im guessing this from the pic not the instructions!) white, and pink. dip the strawberry to the top in the white, let is set, then dip in the pink to a point about a cm or so beneath the white, so you dont cover all the white. let set. Then repeat with the white, but dont cover the pink, etc.
I think if you dipped the strawberry at an angle and changed the direction of the angle each time it might give a nicer effect?

And thanks everyone phew glad im not alone! Man who wrote that!

To me, the ones in the photo just look like they were dipped, then later swirled again and again to build up a coating of varying thickness. Maybe drizzled with a spoon round and round to add to the levels.

you know what I LOVE about that bouquet?? Not only the strawberries, but did you notice the little pansies actually look like they're made of chocolate too. Those are so cool!

That comes from a patent application. Someone is trying to patent their idea of making chocolate covered strawberries that look like rose buds. How can someone patent that? Interesting...... icon_confused.gif

OK, yes English please. Sounds like an attorney or engineer wrote it. No offense to the engineers or attorneys, I just have a hard time sifering/siffting though all the complicated lino. Anyone with a simple step by step instruction....I would appreciate also. Thanks for posting. I love these!

I'm an attorney and I don't understand those directions, so it must have been written by an engineer!

etr2002, glad to know you don't understand either. By the way, once we figure out how to do these, what do we charge?????

I imagine that it would be dipped and then let set up for a moment - dipat an angle and swirl it over to wrap the drizzling ribbon around toward the tip - shift the "rose" around a bit so there is an overlap of petals - then repeat moving toward the bottom in 3-4 sections

simple baker thanks for another great photo!
In the single color ones im assuming they were dipped, then maybe the chocolate was swirled on with a squeezie bottle thing?

these are amazing! very very pretty and a cute idea! i bet they are easier than we think! and i was thinking the same thing with the squeeze bottle technique....its worth a shot, and my bf loves choc dipped strawberries, so if it doesn't work out, i bet he would be ok to just eat them lol! thanks for the pics and info on this idea!

Okay, call me crazy, but those don't look lilke rose buds to me. They look like shiney red piles of, well, not roses. Honestly, not trying to dog on anyone here, I just don't see the attraction. icon_confused.gif

prtrell, actually Im totally with you. Im not at all crazy about the plain ones, and when I make these I am only planning on making the 2 colored ones.
But im going to try the method where I dip in white, set, dip in pink, set...

and those instructions were from this weird patent thing online. They were all I could find lol.

i think they're neat but i also think it would be veeeery important to get a perfectly shaped strawberry. too short and squatty and you get what prterrell was hinting at. but longer, thiner ones would be very pretty. i think they'd be fairly easy. cool!
