I can FLY!
Some parts of cake decorating I love just for the simple joy of the quiet I can experience while working on it…(aka, I do this when the kids are in bed or else suffer major stress!)
take for example, working with chocolate to make ‘decorations’ like hmmm Snitch Wings..
First you draw your pattern on paper
Tape it to the counter, and then tape a piece of waxed paper over it.
Next, melt your chocolate
follow your instructions carefully of course so as not to burn your chocolate or yourself…
Then Pipe the chocolate over your pattern.
I have done a MUCH better job in my piping in the past… two problems last night, first, I couldn’t find my usual chocolate piping containers… so the lid had a much larger hole (more for making filled chocolates or lollipops, than piping designs)… these may have to do if I can’t find the containers today for a do-over…
Finally, for a fun added touch, paint on edible ‘pearl dust’
