How to Put Chocolate Curls on a Cake

Rich chocolate curls add a finishing touch and extra flavour to a homemade cake. High-quality dark or milk chocolate curls give the cake the best flavour. Not only are these delectable decorations simple to create, they add an elegant touch to any type of cake. You can use chocolate curls to jazz up a holiday, birthday, wedding or other special event dessert, and your chocolate-enhanced treat will taste as good as it looks.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Smooth, flat chocolate barWaxed paperCheese slicer or vegetable peelerToothpick

Instructions

1 Choose a smooth, flat chocolate bar to shave. Allow refrigerated chocolate to come to room temperature, so it is pliable. Place the chocolate bar on a piece of waxed paper.

2 Position a sharp handheld cheese slicer or vegetable peeler at the top of the chocolate bar. Apply firm pressure as you slide the slicer or peeler down the block of chocolate; the chocolate will curl as it is sliced.

3 Make small curls by running the slicer or peeler along the corners of the chocolate bar. Create larger curls by running the tool across the bar's flat surfaces.

4 Arrange the delicate chocolate curls on the top of your frosted cake. Place them around the edges as a decorative border, or cover the entire surface with chocolate shavings. Transfer the curls from the waxed paper to the cake using a toothpick, as the warmth from your hands may melt the chocolate.

Tips and warnings

Always peel away from your body.
