Halloween Chocolate Cake Toppers with Choco Writers

By Angela @daisyangel1
I love getting creative with chocolate, but it can be a little messy and a little tricky not to overheat the chocolate. Choco Writers is a clever product that saves time and the guess work of melting chocolate. No more messy worktops, bowls or spatulas when getting creative with Choco Writers.

What is Choco Writers?

A sealed tube containing solid milk, dark or white chocolate that melts once heated with hot water. Create endless chocolate decorations and designs by using the tube like a pen. 
How to Use it? 
Immerse the tube with the lid on into a container of hot water (I used a tall glass). Wait 2-3 minutes. Remove the tube and dry it with a cloth, remove the lid and with a pair of scissor snip off the sealed end.

Having prepared your sheet of baking/parchment paper create your chocolate design, you can either use your creative flair or draw a design on the back of the parchment paper and trace over it with the Choco Writer. 

Leave your decorations to set. I placed my parchment paper onto a tray to make it easy to move out of harms way. Put the lid back on your tube and store in the cupboard until it is time to decorate cakes again. 

They really do add that professional personal touch to a even a simple cupcake. Time to get Creative.
