What is the deal here??? I'm still watching this topic yet I get no emails on this thread. It's happened on other threads too. Is anyone else having this problem?

I've been following this thread...couldn't wait for this weekend to try the 'wrap' So this is my first attempt...it looks boring but I wanted to just concentrate on the wrap not decorating. It was actually kind of fun to do. The plastice peeled off soooo nicely -I think I held my breath throught the whole process. icon_biggrin.gif
Fudge cake with buttercream and cookie crumble filling. White chocolate wrap. THANKS so much to the original poster for the idea!

Not boring at all and you did an excellent job. This is how a wrap should look, a perfectly level and even band at the top with no shattering, and a perfectly smooth wrap with no buckling or waving.

This question was probably answered somewhere in this post. I apologize if it was but I don't recall it. What is the purpose of the chocolate wrap sticking up so high around the top of the cake? I was wondering if it could be made even with the top and then pipe a border on it?

sure, why not? i personally like it about an inch higher, because then it is obvious to people that , "WOW...that is chocolate!" and they wonder how you did it. also, i like it cause you can hold fruit, chocolate shavings, big swirls of ganache ...whatever...up on top.

icon_smile.gif i love chocolate wraps, they get easier and easier, and also are faster than most of my other decorated cakes. so you get a fancy cake in a pinch.

That's what I ought to do for our church dinner this week. I have committed myself to making a birthday cake for our fellowship dinners to celebrate everyone who has a birthday for that month. I've been looking at July themes. Maybe I could do a white chocolate wrap and top the cake with white chocolate drizzled strawberries.

I wonder if I could color the white chocolate blue and use that for the wrap. Then would I be able to make some white chocolate stars and attach them to the blue sides?
