chocolate loops 5

Today, I am sharing another tutorial, using chocolate 😀

I just love chocolate… it’s an easy medium to work with and there is just sooooo much you can do with it!

I made these sprinkly chocolate loops and pushed them on top of the cake, which resulted in a beautiful cake.

To make these loops, you will need the following supplies:

Melted orange chocolate (or any color you like)
Piping bag or squeeze bottle
Orange colored sugar sprinkles (on any color you like)
Wax paper
Brick of white chocolate
Potato peeler

These are the instructions:

Step 1:
Melt orange chocolate in the microwave.
Fill a squeeze bottle or piping bag with melted chocolate.
Make chocolate loops (like the ones shown in the picture) on a sheet of wax paper.

Tip 1:
Don’t squeeze your bag too hard or else you will end up with fat and and ugly loops, like the one on top in the picture.

Tip 2:
If you want all of your loops to be identical, draw multiple loops on paper with a pencil or on your computer. Place that sheet beneath your sheet of wax paper. Then, use those drawings to guide you. I personally prefer all the loops being slightly different in shape and size.

Step 2:
Before the chocolate hardens, sprinkle sanding sugar or colored granulated sugar all over your sheet of wax paper.
You can also toss some colorful sprinkles on these loops, if you like.
Allow these chocolate loops to dry and harden.

Step 3:
In the meantime, use a potato peeler to make chocolate shreds.

Now, stick the chocolate shreds all over your frosted cake.

Finally, push the chocolate loops on top of your cake.

And you are done!
