Yesterday, I showed you a few behind the scenes glimpses of Monday's magazine shoot. I also promised to show you how to make faux bois chocolate pieces that you can use to adorn cupcakes, the tops of cookies, or enjoy on their own. So, here's the tutorial.
You'll need a spoon, milk and white chocolate, cookie cutters of any shape, parchment paper, and a wood-graining tool. You can find the tool at paint stores. They're typically used to make wood grain patterns on walls.
Step 3: Pour ribbons of white chocolate across the milk chocolate grains. Using the back of the spoon, or offset spatula, or butter knife, gently spread the white chocolate across the milk chocolate to fill in the grooves made by the tool.
Here, I've made some leaf-shaped chocolates as well as rounds and shards.
Lil Fish Studios felt acorns cute? The leaf-shaped faux bois chocolates combined with the acorns would make a great cupcake topper.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. It's a very easy, fun project. I'd love to see what you guys use the faux bois chocolate for, so let me know!
Come back later today to see my guest post for another blogger. I'm sharing tips to help you create your own dessert tables. See you then!
