Hi could someone please advise me how the pink swirls would have been done on these chocolate shards? My attempt at this looked nothing like this. Lol
You just add a drop or 2to your melted chocolate & swirl lightly w/a toothpick or melt a tiny bit of pink chocolate &add the same way
Pull through the added color with a toothpick but be careful not to over do it use long strokes and circles
yes what lynnie said and then tap it on the counter so it smooths out -- toothpick, fork, spoon maybe some varying utensils
Thanks everyone. Just so I get this right. So you add the colour (in my case Americolor gel) straight to the spread out chocolate? You don't mix the colour to a little white chocolate first? Because I did the latter and when I did I found it was so thick even after adding gel flo.
Any amount of moisture will cause chocolate to tighten That’s Probably what happened Even though you used gel There’s a bit of moisture in it You will have to work quickly to spread the color
did it cool off too much? or did it seize? if it seized then that's why you don't use that kind of color
I mean you could do it either way -- but I would add it to choc first unless you have the exact color you want in the bottle -- I use powdered color in my choco because I could never remember which kind of color was ok and which wasn't -- they used to make a specific choco liquid/gel color -- so I always used the powder because it's some kind of awful to blow an entire load of choco --
sandra will tell you
Haha, thanks for the vote of confidence, Kate!
I would not use gel color in melted chocolate for fear of seizing (as -K8memphis said), but would use powdered colors in a small amount of chocolate, then mix it with the white. I use gel colors for my modeling chocolate all the time, but it is cool and mixed with corn syrup.
