How to Make Chocolate Garnishes Decorations
In total, there are seven chocolate garnishes you can create using compound chocolate of your choice (dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate, or strawberry chocolate) from Tulip that you can make at home right away!
1. Chocolate Fan
The first chocolate decoration you can make is a chocolate fan. To make it, you need to melt the chocolate at 40 to 45°C. Then cool it down to 34°C.
Next, pour the melted chocolate onto a marble board. After it's solidified, use a metal scraper to shape your chocolate fan. Make it in a size that is not too big so that it can be placed on top of your cake.
2. Chocolate Cigarettes
Have you ever seen chocolate in the form of cigarettes? Well, you can also make your own. Melt the chocolate like the first method. Then pour the melted chocolate onto the marble board.
For this technique, you'll need to shape the melted chocolate into a square. Next, scrape the chocolate with one smooth motion to essentially curl the chocolate into a cylinder, making it look like cigarettes.
3. Chocolate Shaving
To make chocolate shaving, you don't need to melt it first. Place the chocolate vertically, and you can just shave the chocolate thinly using a scraper or a knife. After making plenty of chocolate shaving pieces, you can start placing them on top of your cake!
4. Chocolate Shaving Roll
The chocolate shaving roll has a flower-like shape that is actually quite easy to make. You just need to scrape the chocolate using a Parisian scoop to make spirals. Easy, right? These lovely chocolate rolls will look elegant sitting on top of your cake!
5. Chocolate Net
Making a chocolate net requires melted chocolate. You can put it on baking paper that has been cut into squares. Next, rake the chocolate with a metal comb.
Wait until your chocolate net is completely set, then cut using a heated cutter shaped as desired. Afterward, remove it from the initial mold. Now you can decorate your cake with your lovely chocolate net!
6. Chocolate Butterfly
To make a chocolate butterfly, first of all, you’ll need to create the wings pattern using a printed outline drawing of a butterfly. There are many reference images you can find online. If you want to make multi-colored chocolate butterflies, mix the melted chocolate with food dye in any color you want. In this example, we’re using purple. When it is completely mixed, pipe the dyed chocolate following the butterfly wings pattern on the wax paper. Repeat the process until you trace all the butterfly patterns. Wait for it to dry. Combine all the parts together and your chocolate butterfly is ready!
7. Petal Ribbon
To create a petal ribbon chocolate decoration, pour melted Tulip Decor Compound onto a layer of square plastic. When the chocolate has hardened, cut using a circular cutter. Repeat the process to make the ribbon.
