Over the years there has been many pictures or beautiful ornament cakes/cupcakes and poured chocolate ones...

 

I would like to make some for a Santa cake I am doing.I don't really want to make cupcakes with domed tops or two Wilton half ball cakes but rather make an actaul chocolate ornament (pour two halves and glue together)..Is there any tutorials...How To's or You Tube videos to show how to do this??

Wouldtn it be like making a pumpkin out of a tiny bundt cake pan mold?....bake them, glue them together with bc, and ice them or dip them in choc and decorate?

 

Sounds pretty easy...

I made some last Christmas using the two part clear plastic molds from Michael's. I filled one half of the ornament with melted Candy Melts, snapped on the other half, twirled it around to coat the whole inside, then put them in the freezer for a few minutes. You can tell when it has hardened because the "chocolate" comes away from the plastic ornament a bit. (You can see it because they are clear, of course!). Then I separated the two halves, leaving the chocolate ornament in one whole piece. Is that what you had in mind? It was super easy and fast. I made the little silver cap for the ornaments with gum paste.
