These white chocolate pencils (110 pencils per box) are created for decorating cakes, in particular wedding cakes. Use around the sides of celebration cakes and wedding 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 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.

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.

I used the Callebaut brand white chocolate pencils to edge my nieces birthday cake, and used the Callebaut strawberry curls to fill in the topping of the cake.
The pencils were longer than I needed, but as the Chocolate Trading Co described, cut easily with a hot knife. The extra bits I used in ice-creams. The cake looked amazing and everyone commented on it.
