that's a chocolate wrap. I think there are basic instructions in a sticky in the cake decorating forum (not sure which forum though). I also have a video on doing all different wraps, this was one of them, done about 3 years ago.

That is my cake- I'm glad you liked it! There is a post on chocolate wraps with full instructions on basic wraps here on CC, I also have instructions on my blog. Read through the instructions so you understand the process but instead of smoothing chocolate out just drizzle it back and forth in crisscross motion. Hope that made sense.

It's a chocolate wrap. There are tutorials on YouTube. I'd hunt one down for you, but I'm writing this from my phone and it's sort of a PIA with the small screen.

That makes me sad it was done on video 3 years ago! Here I was thinking it was an original idea! Oh well.

I saw that in a tutorial on mycakeschool.com . Its melted chocolate piped onto the clear plastic or you could also use parchment, but the plastic is sturdier. Then you have the let the chocolate harden a little but wrap the cake berfore it actually sets because if not, then it'll break if its too hard. Tricky timing, you might have to do it a few times before you get it right. The one I saw had flowers on the wrap. Haven't tried it myself but doesn't look too easy. Good luck to you!

It is so creative! I just checked out your blog and will definitely be using it as a reference. Thanks to everyone for all your help! Love CC!

Wilton had this idea posted in the yearbook, either last year or the year before I believe.

Isn't it fantastic that you can post a photo of an awesome cake and not only get advice on the technique used, but actually contact the original cake designer?!!!

This site is so great.

Sorry misterc, I know what that's like, thinking you figured something out on your own, and then finding another mind has done it. I did notice Wilton did the circle chocolate wrap in their yearbook last year (also in my video) and I know that's been around a while. Just shows great minds think alike!! icon_lol.gif

But I love the color you used on your cake!

Thanks Sweetflowers. I guess I should still look at the wilton year books. It didn't seem like there was ever anything new so I quit buying them. Considering cake decorating has been around for a very long time there probably aren't too many original ideas out there, huh.
