Having discovered you can make chocolate casings for giant cupcakes using silicone moulds I wanted to have a go at the same technique using a different silicone cake mould I had kicking about.
I used this mould and this technique.
Once I had created the moulded chocolate case (using blue candymelts as it is what I had in the cupboard) I threw together my favourite chocolate cake and fitted the casing over the cooled cake.
It was then it occurred to me that it looked like a floral wreath, i was thinking about a Christmas wreath decorated with sugarpaste holly, ivy and berries, or how about wreath decorated with poppies for November?
As it is neither Christmas or November I decided to practice my buttercream flowers and decorated my wreath with pansy style flowers, just to give you an idea of how this design could look.
I know i will be using this technique later in the year and think it’s a really different, stylized way to present a ring cake, what do you all think?
I have a new toy, a cake airbrush- so i had a play at spraying one side of each ‘groove’ purple to create a two-tone effect. I’ll be using my airbrush a lot more from now on, I love it! <3Share on Facebook
