Branching Out

I love everything about cakes but I want to expand my knowledge and learn other tricks of the trade too. I thought I would try a chocolate molding class. We learned to temper the chocolate and make it so it is the consistancy of playdoh! From there you can shape it however you like. If you melt down white chocolate you can also colour it! This makes a great alternative for covering a cake rather than using fondant. Not everyone loves the taste of fondant. Here is my finished product. A chocolate basket with chocolate flowers, leaves and vines. Even the handle and ribbon are chocolate! I used Oreo crumbs for the "dirt" and Jube Jube rocks for decoration!
