Hey Shirley and Melysa,
I'm hoping you can help me. I've been asking myself WWSD and WWMD but I can't get anywhere!!!
I tried a wrap today and while terribly intimidating, it wasn't all that hard. Of course, it doesn't look anything near perfect, but my husband is fabulously easy to please, so it'll do.
However, I have two problems. First, where the two ends meet the chocolate pulled off with the acetate resulting in the ugly spot seen here.
Did I not let the chocolate set long enough (approx. 30 minutes in the fridge) or is there another issue? If yes, what? Do you think I can patch this up with a bit of piped melted chocolate or should I just find a big, wide ribbon and call it a day?
Secondly, if you look at the "nicer" of the two pictures, you can see that there are horizontal bands in the wrap. Is this a question of my chocolate, the temperature when melted, etc? As this was a first, I just melted down chocolate chips (about 1/2 bag) and added 1 t. of vegetable oil.
Thank you both for all of your posts in this thread. I feel like I can refer to this many times for information. You have both made this concept much more accessible to a non-professional, non-fabulosa hobbyist!
