I was looking at Carrie's Cakes and wanted to know how to do the perfect curls like the ones in a couple of the pics scrolling on her banner slideshow. Can someone tell me? tia

I'm not sure if this would do it, or maybe something similar:

Thank you! I forgot, Dove (DCD) used to sell one of these; I have seen it before. I'll look around.

Also check out The Sweet Life site (Norm Davis). The curls Carrie makes are very like Norm and Zane's, and they sell a hand-held curler.

and go to the Services tab.

Some people use a spoon or a cheese slicer. I think I've just used a small spatula or butter knife. But you just have to spread out tempered chocolate kinda thin and wait for the right moment when it's pliable and you're golden. You are at the chocolate's mercy. It's not gonna happen before or after the perfect pliableness--so that's the biggie. You could probably scrape it up with a rock when it's the right temperature. But a cool tool is always fun too.
