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. Labelled under the Mona Lisa brand by Callebaut.
- 110 chocolate pencils per box approximately
- Measuring 200mm (20cm) long by 8mm (just under 1cm) width.
Due to the fragile nature of this product it is possible the box may contain some minor breakages
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.

Dark chocolate pencils...exactly as described.
I used alternating white chocolate and dark chocolate pencils to decorate the around the edge of my cake. The twisted effect looked great on my finished cake and they were easy to work with and cut to length, using a hot knife as the Chocolate Trading Co suggested.
They're really good quality chocolate and everyone commented on their taste.
Now I've found these amazing chocolate pencils online, I'll definitely be using them again. Such good value.

The trouble with making a very tall cake is that you need very tall chocolate pencils to go around it. Thank fully, Chocolate Trading have come to the rescue again. I wouldn't buy my chocolate decorations from anywhere else now.
