Chocolate Filigree

DebinD | Feb 7, 2012 09:45 AM

I'm wanting to do some Chocolate Filigree for a grown-up birthday party.
The theme is black, white, silver and gold
I'm making cupcakes in black glitter liners and using chocolate cake and white cake. They will be frosted in white frosting and I wanted to do some chocolate filigree for the decoration -but I have questions -
1) can I make the chocolate black?
2) Can I make these any other shape that's not a heart?
Most of the recipes call for melted chocolate chips -but should I add some paraffin?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
