Calling all chocolatiers (or amateurs)!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I was asked to create this cake (link below), but i have no clue how to make the chocolate ribbons/ruffles look like the ones in this design.

I tried using a cheese cutter and a bench scraper, but the ribbons kept ending up too short, or cracking before they were long enough. Should I use modeling chocolate for this, or is there a way to use pure chcolate to accomplish this design, and if so, what tools or supplies do i use? Thanks SO much for any tips or advice!! I don't need to do the rose on top, just the white chocolate ribbons.

The chocolate around that cake looks like the chocolate wrap to me.

Found this on her blog! Looks fun! It's a video of her showing how she does it. It's just tempered chocolate. (Which is pretty impressiveicon_wink.gif)

Ok...i just realized she has a how to video on the website. Lol. Silly me. Too bad i don't have a marble slab. I wonder if you could use a frozen sheet pan?

Richard Festen of BakingArts has a great video on a similiar technique without the slab. www.bakingart.net
