This is my Heirloom Cake
all dressed up for a baby shower. I made it for my dear friend Ann. You remember the shortbread cookies with the chocolate writing
, don't you? In that post I promised
to show you how to assemble a traditional paper pastry bag or "cone". Most importantly, I said I would show you how to write with chocolate! First, you need a paper cone! A paper cone is really the best tool when it comes to writing/decorating. It is really the preferred method over pastry bag with tips. These cones are easy to make and when it comes to writing with chocolate there is no better tool! I buy the pre-cut parchment triangles --these can be found at Little Bitts Shop
, A.C. Moore, or Michaels. Here is my tutorial below.
It doesn't need to be perfect!
Place it into a glass so that you can pour the chocolate into the cone.
Now snip the end with a pair of kitchen scissors. Hold cone from the top applying a little bit of pressure as you write words or just decorate like I did on the strawberries below.
