How To Make Chocolate Petals To Decorate Sweets

Chocolate petals or flowers are a beautiful addition to any cake or dessert. If you think it’s difficult, no worries just stay tuned for the technique! 😉

 

To make chocolate petals you will need: some baking paper and/or acetate/rhodoid sheets,  a piping bag (if you cannot make one with the baking paper), some vegan chocolate, a bent spatula and something cylindrical like a french baguette mold or a muffin mold.

     

 

 

 

 

Make the piping bag with the baking paper or use one reusable.

Start with tempering your chocolate (better if you would like the chocolate ending shining and glossy). You can skip this step if you don’t care 🙂

After cutting some bands of the baking paper, use the piping bag with your tempered chocolate on the baking paper or acetate sheet as the picture shows:

Working quickly before the chocolate hardens curve it up into a half circle. Carefully transfer the chocolate petals on their baking paper(or acetate sheet) to your mold and set aside in the fridge.

Here is the result after a few minutes, the petals became harder and the chocolate is now solid, like this:

 

Last step is to gently remove the paper from the petals. You can use it as it is or also make chocolate flower sticking them all together…

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY!
