Chocolate decoration

5 posts in this topic

I am trying to make this spiral shaped chocolate decoration. Unfortunately, the recipe I am going by gives no instructions for it. My first thought was to spread tempered chocolate on some acetate, cut into shape with a razor blade, then roll around a pin and let set. I am not sure if that will even work, or if there may be a better technique for making something such as this.

Here is a picture:

I think you are on the right track. I would spread tempered chocolate on acetate, score with a needle and lay inside a cylinder like a cut PVC pipe. When set up, peel off and and the cut edges should separate.

I agree, pre-cut, then once you've lifted it (coated in chocolate) run your fingers along the edges to neaten them.

Thanks all. I think I will try pre-cutting the acetate, as I imagine it will end up looking neater that way. I'll report back with results.
