I tried to make these beautiful curls, but wasn't able to get the same effect most of the time. It was important to keep the chocolate firm, so I had to return it to the frig every few minutes. I did get some nice flakes that were less curly, so I was pretty pleased.
I tried for 45 minutes and never got a single big beautiful curl. One of my friends said I shouldn't have used Ghardelli semi-sweet chocolate because it doesn't have enough fat content. Maybe that was the problem. The chocolate shavings that I produced instead still looked nice.
Exactly what I was looking for thanks
I used bittersweet chocolate to make some of these to garnish slices of Cappuccino Cheesecake. It worked quite well, but I don't think I have the patience to make enough to cover an entire cake, like that gorgeous masterpiece you made. lol Thanks for posting!
thanks for the recipe,my cake turned out beautiful
