Any idea of how to make this cake??? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Here is a previous post on making the chocolate curl. He sells a tool to make them. However, you can use other tools you already have. There are alot of youtube videos on making curls.

They do look like the chocolate shells-I've also seen on Albert Uster Imports. Not sure how much they are.

I agree that they do look like chocolate shells. However, there is no way I can afford them so I think I'm gonna have to go with plan B and either make my own out of chocolate or use hollowed out fondant balls. Which would you recommend?

I think the cheapest way would be to buy the molds I linked to, and use candy melts (no tempering needed) and make your own shells. It's really not that hard.

I think I may have found the chocolate shells. The website is from Canada but I believe they ship to the US. http://www.mccalls.ca/itemdesc.asp?ic=5327&eq=&Tp=

You can also purchase the mold at Kitchen Krafts, They have them listed as sour ball/hard candy mold, but its more expensive that what WykdGud has on her link.

Here's instructions on how to make the chocolate shells. If you look at photo 7, they look a lot like the hollow choco balls in your cake photo.

Thank you so much warchild! icon_biggrin.gif Being able to see the instructions sure does help. Do you have any suggestions on a quick way to adhere the chocolate pieces to the fondant?

You can melt some more chocolate and put it in a disposable piping bag and use that to "glue" the shells to the fondant.

You're very welcome!

As for adhering, I'd follow WykdGud's advice and use melted chocolate.
