I bought the Callebaut white chocolate pencils (200mm) to edge a special party cake. The parcel was extremely well packaged and not even one stick was broken, really impressed! Fast delivery too.
I made a two tier cake and used buttercream to hold the sticks in place. I decorated by wrapping with sheer ribbon tied into a big bow, which worked well. The cakes were about 7" and 9" diameter and each about 6-7cm tall - I cut the sticks in half and still had about a quarter of the box left after decorating. Piled each tier with berries.
The chocolate sticks made it look really special and honestly I don't bake a lot so I was very pleased with the result. Everyone thought it was from a professional bakery! Wowsers. Chocolate tasted great too.
I couldn't find anything similar on the high street or at the supermarket, and was hestitating at first about the price, but it was so worth it to make a special day feel even more special.
