I'm sorry I'm so behind on all the posts and questions you all have asked!!! Oh, and no, you probably haven't seen this technique anywhere because I'm pretty sure I'm the one to discover it...or at least as far as I know!!

I want to try this icon_smile.gif I want to make sure I'm using the right kind of chocolate. I have tried to use melted choc chips for other projects and they never set up, are you using baking chips like Wilton that are specifically for candy making? Does it need to stay refrigerated after the choc is put on? PS, I live in FL, it is hot and humid....
Thanks!!

Thank you so much everyone!!

Ang0306- I always just use Chocolate Chips!! If it is really hot, I would say yes, it needs to stay in the fridge or an air conditioned room.... if you're worried about the chocolate chips, you can use tempered chocolate...

I will be working on my first chocolate wrap for a baby shower in the next few weeks. I have seen chocolate transfers, but I'm wondering if you couldn't take one color of chocolate melts and write or draw on the parchment, let that harden up and then put a second color on over top of that as the background. Will that work? Does anyone know?

Could you even take the oil candy colors and using a paint brush draw stripes or something on the parchment and immediately pour the chocolate on top of it so it adheres?

Or, would it be easier to do a plain chocolate wrap and then use the candy colors to paint on the chocolate after the cake has been wrapped?

Thanks!

I have done white chocolate on the acetate, and then done brown chocoalte on top, and it didn't work very well. The white didn't hold its shape. I will try to attach a photo to this post so you can see!

If you painted on the acetate first, then put the chocolate on, I'm sure it will get really smeared since you need to spread out the chocolate and smooth it out and things.

I think the best way would be to paint it on afterward. You could even pipe chocolate, buttercream, or royal onto it after its cooled..

I don't know if any of you saw my chocolate wrap cake I posted awhile back, you can also use an imprint mat to make your chocolate wrap with. I got mine from Kitchen sweet art. They have all different patterns. I just measure how tall and how much around to tape the pieces together. Imelt down the chocolate discs, and pour over the imprint sheet. Level, wrap around cake, pop in resfrig and 10 minutes later just peel the impression mat off. Very easy.Pic is in my photos I can't seem to figure out how to upload it to this page
