Hi TheLoveofSugar, BakerBee and Rommy,
Just checking back in to share the giant cupcake rose bouquet I made for Mother's Day. I had to make the chocolate "cupcake liner" 4 times before I was completely happy with it (and even then, wasn't completely happy with it).
The plan was to have a blue liner but candy melts aren't that easily available where I am and are rather pricey, so I coloured some melted white chocolate instead. Saw it done this way in another tutorial. It worked fine the first 2 times I re-melted the base, but it just wouldn't melt enough the third time. It stayed thick and goopy, so I ditched the whole thing and used milk chocolate instead.
I had to shave the base down, but only very slightly. Just the ridges, like Rommy said.
So here it is.. I know my roses are atrocious I really wanted to scrape them all off and start again, but my Mom was due home at any time, so it had to do. Do share the ones you made, TheLoveofSugar and BakerBee!
