I was just looking at Golda's kitchen website and came across Chocolate Transfer Sheets? I have never seen these before and wonder how they are used. Could anyone tell me? Are they a one time use? Very curious...they are beautiful!
they are a one time use...basically you just coat it with chocolate and then you can wrap it around your cake and once hard you peel back the acetate and it leaves the design on the chocolate.
You can also put it on candies, cookies, etc. Any surface that you add fresh melted chocolate too and then let it harden and peel away.
Here is a cake I did where I took a plain sheet of acetate and drew the flowers on with melted pink chocolate and let them dry and then added the milk chocolate and then wrapped around the cake, popped the whole thing in the freezer for 2 minutes and peeled away the acetate. Very fun.
Would be cool to make abstract squiggles and lines and such too on your own.....and much cheaper than the premade transfers (although not as pretty lol)
You can also use transfer sheets to make bows for ribbons and cake toppers. After spreading chocolate on the transfer, you let it dry a bit and then connect the ends (make sure the acetate is on the outside!!!). Then after hardening, you can peel off the acetate and you have a beautiful decorated bow.
They are a one time use. I have found that the company listed throughout this website offers the best deal because you can order them by the sheet. If you only do a bit, then you can cut what you need for your project and store them in a cool dry place until needed again.
Thanks so much...very interesting...always something neat to find and look into!
