Baking season is upon us, y’all! Whether baking for the local bake sale, holiday potlucks, or your own gathering, I have a super simple way for you to dress up your cakes and cupcakes with a chocolate cake topper. People will think you spent so much time in the kitchen, but you’ll know better! You can even buy plain cupcakes and cakes from the local grocery and add your own custom chocolate toppers! Shhhhhhh, I won’t tell!
This candy melting pot is the best thing to come into my life lately! Melting chocolate in the microwave can be so easily messed up, not to mention you have to work fast before it starts to cool. But this pot will warm and melt the chocolate and keep it at the perfect temperature while you use a little at a time.
Melt the chocolate wafers that you want to use first in the melting pot.
Fill one of the squeeze bottles with the melted chocolate. The bottles have a fine tip making them easy to “write” with.
Trace the designs from the template onto the wax paper, making the designs fairly thick so they won’t break when peeling up. Keep a wet paper towel and a toothpick nearby for touch ups as needed. There is no rush to work quickly. The chocolate will stay warm in the bottle for quite some time. The tip of the nozzle will start to dry first. Simply remove the top from the bottle, place it in a small glass jar, and microwave for 20-30 seconds to remelt the chocolate.
Once dry, carefully peel all designs from the wax paper.
I’m thinking this technique would make amazing personalized birthday cake toppers, too.
