These were made from melted choc. chips that I put into oblong measuring spoons and then put in the fridge to harden. Each spoon made a half of an acorn. So after they hardened i put 2 sides together and then cut it to shape an acorn. I used cream colored buttercream to brush on the the choc. and then brown icing for the top. I really liked the life like look of these. I hope I do more fall cakes so I can make some more acorns!! Ha ha!
