For the cake in this picture, what type of plastic would I use to make the external chocolate shell that is wrapped around the cake? And where do you buy the plastic? Thanks so much in advance.
It's the material that book report covers are made of--acetate.
Cutthecake, where do you buy acetate?
You can get sheets of it at country kitchen, just search for acetate. I have also used parchment paper and wax paper. The only drawback to those is it is more flimsy and you side could 'wave' a little.
Oh and art supply stores (craft stores too) carry it.
art supply stores have them also. good luck!
Office supply stores should carry them also.
Great! THanks for all the tips! Guess I'll be shopping this weekend.
I bought it at Staples.
I used freezer paper and folded it three times to make it thicker. Worked perfectly!
Freezer paper! What a great idea!
