I am attaching chocolate chips on the sides of my butter creram cake. Which is better--butter cream or piping gel? Or is there another method.
TIA

I would just use a little bit of buttercream.

and I'm a big fan of piping gel so sounds like either one will work!

good luck!

I started out using the piping gel, but that got old fast. my butter cream was thick enough to do the quilting, so I just stuck the chips into the bc.

thanks for the compliments. i used aztec gold dust on the mini chips and placed the flat end out. i might try putting the "curled" end out next time for a different look. it was a lot of fun and i am glad to have had my tweezers, but will be shopping for a bigger pair in te future. icon_biggrin.gif
