Chocolate Curls Christmas Cake

I know I said I would stop with the red and green but apparently I was totally lying.  Sorry.

I made a white cake, tinted some frosting red and green, then melted some chocolate.  Have you ever made chocolate curls?  I had tried once before.  It was a major fail.  I am pretty sure there were even some comments mocking my skills, and if they werent totally right I might have been upset.

Ok, so looks like I still have not mastered this technique.  I could not get one single perfect swirly curl.

I blame the red candy melts I used.  And the warm December weather. And that one boy in 2nd grade who called me 4-eyes. *cough*

Clearly I have issues.

In addition to sharing this sweet little Christmas cake with you, I also wanted to share a couple other cakes that I think you would enjoy!

 

I can’t help but be drawn to the beauty of the red, white & green color palate and you will see that most of my Christmas cakes fall inline with that theme!

    For some reason I just got an email in my inbox with this post, even though it’s over two months old now. Weird! Anyway, I looked at the rafflecopter and saw someone with my name won and just wanted to make sure it wasn’t me. I don’t think I got any email about it so I’m assuming it’s another lucky Veronica. :)
