I’m going to cheat a bit in using a photo from late last month to kick off our exploration of chocolate and chocolate decorations this month. My own focus will be mostly on the latter—though who knows what might happen, when I finally get my hands on the new book!!!!
I have some white chocolate left over from doing a wedding cake in August. I collected tons of patterns for borders and such online. That gave me an itch to learn more and do better in using chocolate ornamentation. Actually, it was an itch I’d had for some time. I watched one of my instructors make the most incredible chocolate plaque with dark and white couverture for my sister’s wedding cake two years ago. All I could think and feel was, “Wow!”
Will tell you more about the photo another day. For now, will just mention that I found the pattern at the Wilton website. This link is a wonderful resource, if you’re looking for inspiration: http://www.wilton.com/decorating/patterns/patternlocator.cfm
Can’t wait to hear what everyone else plans and to see the results! Carol
