This is a simple tutorial on how to make put prints on traditional chocolate giant cupcake "wrapper" shell without using the giant cupcake pan/mold.
List of Materials
- clean recycled dome container / lid
- paint brush
- candy melts or white chocolate melting wafers
- candy food colors
Prepare your materials. For the mold, you could actually use any size or any design container that you find. For this project, the recycled containner was a mini donut container bought from the grocery store. This fits a 6" cake perfectly.
Melt your candy melt according to package directions. Depending on the number of colors that you would like to use in your design, put a small amount of the candy melt in separate bowls and tint each one accordingly. If you opt to use colored candymelts, that's fine too. Just melt each color separately. :)
Paint the design you want on the inside of the bowl using your paint brush and the melted colored chocolates. The possibilities are endless! :)
When the painted picture has completely set, pour the melted white chocolate gently in the mold by slowly turning the mold making sure that all curves and crevices are covered.
Cover the inside of the mold entirely and let set in the refrigerator.
After letting it set completely, gently separate the sides of the mold from the chocolate by giving the mold a little nudge, like when you're trying to pop out ice cubes but very gently. Turn it upside down on the table and it will pop right out. Voila! You have your own printed chocolate mold. :)
