I have a bride that wants strawberries dipped in white chocolate on a white cake. I don't think it has to be Stark white, off creamy white is ok, but 'white' chocolate is usually a bit yellow. Is there one that is whiter? I have not delt with strawberries much at all on a cake.

I have heard that if you wash your berries, the chocolate won't stick. How do YOU prepare your berries?

What's your favorite kind of white chocolate for dipping?

Wilton has a "bright white" candy melt, that's if the bride doesn't really care for the slight taste difference and just wants the white white. Unfortunately I have only dipped cake pops in chocolate so I can't account for strawberry prep.

AWow too funny...I had someone ask me about that cake not too long ago. They ended up not going with it because it was going to cost then a small fortune in berries which were out of season anyway.

I'm thinking 1 flat may do it.  You think?

A flat of Strawberries are about 25 dollars here in the summer... sometimes 22. I may have to get 2 flats to be sure I have enough.

I plan to dip them Saturday morning, If I wash them Friday night is the chocolate/dip going to stick? I've heard it doesn't stick if you was them.

AJust dry them after you wash them. I would wash them and pat dry. You defiantly want to wash them.

It's for Memorial weekend.

 

I will be buying them fresh from a farmers market, so they won't be in the 'cold' section at a grocery store.

 

I'm guessing the dip will adhere them to the cake without toothpicks or other support? Going to be interesting 'sticking' them on.

AI would use some of the melted chocolate to stick them on. I would say maybe toothpicks but then think the juice might bleed onto the cake, maybe others will have better idea. Also I wouldn't refrigerate the berries and make sure to use real firm ones.

Thanks, I was thinking toothpicks would make them juice. Surely the chocolate will stick them. I better bring a fan! lol
