Chocolate ribbons and cake wrapping question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have been wanting to try making chocolate ribbons and wrapping cakes in chocolate, but I don't live close to a craft store to buy the acetate sheets that people have said you need to use for this. Is there a different plastic or waxed paper or something that I can use to make these things? Thanks

You can use the shiny side of freezer paper. The only potential problem will be that you can't see through it. Not a problem if you're making bow loops, though.

Or, you can use wax paper. Problem with that is it can be rather flimsy. I've used it many times. Like anything else, it takes practice. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for your suggestions. I will give it a try using those and see how things work out for me.

I know nothing about this, but what about transparency sheets? Like the ones teachers use on overhead projectors? Maybe those could be picked up at someplace like a Walmart if you don't have a craft store nearby. Just a suggestion.

I like that idea, but I don't know if that would be considered food safe. Does anyone know for sure if transparency sheets would be safe to use?

Transparency sheets might be too stiff for bow loops. I'm not sure as I haven't seen a transparency sheet in years. icon_smile.gif

But I guarantee they are too short for wrapping a cake.
