Hi everyone I'm wanting to make a cake for a friend of mine who is a chocoholic . Something a cadbury bar of chocolate need some help
With how to get the little square cubes of chocolate under the fondant shall I just mark the fondant or put something under there. Hope someone understands

I 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.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

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
