AI would carve out the lines. Use a knife slanted at an angle or a melon ballet. That way, when you cover the cake, you will have the blocks of chocolate.

You can carve out the lines with a pairing knife, just a little bit angled, then crumb coat and cover it with fondant and mark the lines pushing down gently with a thin, large and rounded tool (Wilton has a purple one that helps very well).

Here is the photo of one of them I´ve made.

Have fun!

Hi,

 

I am just wondering how you got the decoration on the "wrapper" of the chocolate bar? I will be making this cake for a friend's daughter and would appreciate some tips.

 

Thanks

Ditto, joandwade. Would really appreciate if you could share how you made this lovely "chocolate bar" icon_biggrin.gif

TIA!

AHi girls all I did was get the logo printed on to icing paper and than using a sharp knife cut around the bits I wanted to use and placed it on top of the fondant icing and it just blends in. :-) good luck x

AmantiCupcakes Posted 23 May 2013 , 2:22pm

AHi, I'm making a bar of dairy milk for a birthday. What did you use for the silver under the wrapper? Where did you go for the icing paper printing? Your cake is brilliant!

joandwade Posted 23 May 2013 , 6:24pm

AI got the cake topper icing done from eBay actually but since then I found a cake place here where I live that can print what ever picture u want onto the icing paper so that's good cause someone else has asked me to do another one. The silver is edible silver paper.

AmantiCupcakes Posted 23 May 2013 , 8:36pm

AThank you, I'll give eBay a try :-) I only hope mine looks as great as yours when it's finished!

redstar66 Posted 23 May 2013 , 11:04pm

Hi Joandwade,

 

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I'm new to this forum and didn't realise that you have to click to the next page to see other posts (silly me). Thanks for the advice, I have found a place near me that does icing printing so I will see if I can get them to do it for me! Great idea and a lot less hassle than trying to cut out all the letters. :)

 

Thanks
