HOW TO GET PERFECT CHOCOLATE CURLS EVERY TIME
The easiest way to make chocolate curls or chocolate shavings is with a vegetable peeler. Use a potato peeler to make chocolate peels for garnish on cakes, cupcakes and pastries. The best way to get perfect curls each time is to chill the chocolate before in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes. Once you have all your curls then make sure to keep them cold so they don’t melt before you can use them as a garnish!
USE A HOT KNIFE TO SLICE CAKE PERFECTLY
Start with heating a knife under hot water, dry it off, and make sure it is fully dry before moving on. Then use the hot knife to easily slice through cakes perfectly every time. This prevents losing large chunks of the cake and keeping the filling and frosting from melding together. If you are cutting a lot of cake periodically stop and repeat the process again.
