Very pretty! Looks easy enough for a beginner like me to try!
Pretty! How did you do the design that is on the cake? <3 it!
@BlueSheepBakeShop, I think you need to make a cake collar with a sheet of clear food grade acetate, cut it to the length of the side of the cake, and pipe your design on. While it's still fresh you can adhere it to your ganached cake and pop it in the fridge to firm up. Once it's done peel the acetate off.
muy bonito :-) me encanta la técnica esta sencilla
Thank you for sharing Cake Central! Thank you for everyone's lovely comments, I really appreciate it! @MyFairDiva, thank you for explaining it to @BlueSheepBakeShop :-). I use greaseproof paper instead of acetate because I always have it handy, I cut it to the height and circumference of my cake. I then pour melted chocolate into a zip-lock bag, cut off the corner of the bag and pipe swirls on the greaseproof paper. Before it starts to set you quickly lift it up and fold it around your cake. Then put it in the fridge for 10 minutes to set and pull the paper off. I have clear instructions and step by step photographs in my book "Decorating Cakes with Chocolate" which is available on Amazon. ♥
