These dark chocolate pencils (110 pencils per box) are created for decorating cakes. Use around the sides of celebration cakes or as high quality chocolate decorations for topping cupcakes and desserts.
Whilst similar to chocolate cigarellos in their decorative use, these chocolate pencils have an additional decorative twist and are also much easier to cut to size, if required, to suit the height of your cake. Made from high quality Belgian chocolate.
How many chocolate pencils will I need to decorate a cake?
For placing the chocolate pencils vertically around the side of a cake you first need to measure the circumference of the cake or tin in cm's. As each chocolate pencil is around 1cm width you will require double the number. Plus some extra to allow for size variances in the chocolate pencils and any possible breakages.
Cutting the chocolate pencils to size
Using a hot knife, simply cut the chocolate pencils to size before fixing with either buttercream or ganache around the side of your cake.
Chocolate pencils are popular in all types of chocolate decoration and can be used either whole or cut to size for chocolate cupcake toppings, chocolate desserts, ice cream toppings, cappuccino and celebration cakes. As chocolate pencils vary in size the above is for approximate guidance only.
