Valentine's Aftermath

I wanted to post my chocolate showpiece on Valentines Day but it just didn't seem appropriate. This entire showpiece is made out of chocolate and sugar. It is truly incredible how much you can do with chocolate.

Cake and Love

Valentines Day is fast approaching and there is no better way to say 'I love you' than with a cake! For this cake I decided to cover it in marzipan (I prefer the taste of marzipan over fondant) and then decorated it with royal icing and a chocolate rose. I made the rose using chocolate plastic, which is simply melted chocolate and corn syrup. Chocolate plastic pretty much tastes like tootsie rolls. Cake on the Brain posted this great tutorial on how to make chocolate roses of your own.
