Thanks so much for this I saw it on fb! :D 1
Thanks for that. Great idea!
Thanks! What a great idea!
Thanks so much :-)
I saw this before with the Wilton cupcake pan. Have anyone tried this method?
That's so awesome. Thanks for the idea!
WOW THAT WAS FANTASTIC!
OK....Now this candy will be hard...how do you suggest to cut it with out it falling apart?
I want to know how to do the decorations on top.
Fab idea. I will be giving this a try :)
Does the base remain hollow?
Very nice I would also like to know what tip you use to decorate the top and how it was done thanks
Where can I find this clear container and lid? Can anyone help me!
neenaperez: You can get those clear plastic containers at most grocery stores. They come with croissants, cookies, etc. in them. They have a black clip on bottom. They come in different sizes. You can also get them (unused) at party stores. People use them to store and serve their party foods.
BelleAcoeur: The base in her finished photo isn't hollow. She covered the bottom of the plastic container. She did not fill the container, she just spread the candy around the inner side of the container. It's so you can set the baked cupcake inside (like a bucket).
BakingbytheBeach: it's going to crack when you go to slice the cake. It probably won't cut nicely. Just serve a sliver with each piece of cake.
Blondie and Daytona: Use a large rose tube and swirl roses as you would on a little individual cupcake. Just swirl them close together to cover the cake top.
Thanks, Donna for posting and sharing this. The finished product is gorgeous!!
Thanks guys for the sweet words.
Thank you I_Am_Pam_10 for answering the question very thoroughly! <3
I must say, for the cutting part, it is hard to cut and it will crack. But your cake should be okay if you ice it well. The chocolate was the favourite part of the guests though. This is the first time that the whole of the cake "decoration" was eaten and not separated like when we do it with fondant. :)
Thanks for looking. :)
wonderful tutorial.. thanks for sharing.. I would like to know are the candy colors different from the normal jel colors?
Hi Doli, yes candy colors are oil based and will mix smoothly with the chocolate and not make the chocolate grainy. I read somewhere that you could also use powder food colors. It is the water content in regular food colors that does not go well with your chocolate.
Thank YOU sooooo much!
thank you so much!! brilliant!
To cut this cake neatly you could use a hot knife - dip in boiling water and dry. It's a bit slow but it works! I use two knives in a deep narrow (asparagus) pan of boiling water, alternating them so one is heating up while I'm using the other. I'm not sure I should be confessing to this as it sounds rather obesssive... :)
Awesome. What a great tip.
Tip # 2D makes a lovely rose too. Just start it off as a star, lift up and pipe around the center star. Very easy to do. Thanks for sharing; great idea using the plastic domes.
Thanks indeed for sharing, great tutorial!!!. I'm just wondering how you got the cake in into the chocoate case. Thanks
