Day 13: Chocolate toppers

Get ready to let your creative side come out!  Nothing fancies up a cake or cupcake like chocolate flair.

Start off by melting some candy melts in the color and flavor of your choice.  Melting directions are on the package.

Stir until there are no lumps.  Spoon into a quart size freezer bag.  I realize this is the most unappealing picture!

Snip off the very end of the bag.

Now's the fun part!  Lay out some parchment or wax paper and start doodling!

Leave them sitting out until they harden.  You could even stick them in the fridge to speed it up.

Once they've hardened, carefully lift off the design with a spatula.

And now, prepare to be amazed!

Remember cupcake wrappers?  
I tried to copy something I saw somewhere using trees against a cake.
Eh...I don't know.  Maybe if I spent a little more time on it.

This was so much fun!  Just be careful because they are obviously very fragile.  I broke a few along the way so I would suggest making extras of the design.

Breakage does have a silver lining, you get to eat the pieces! :)
