Chocolate Curls Christmas Cake

filed under: Surprise Inside Cakes · White Cakes on December 7, 2012

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!

    I have an old flip phone so all parts sound great to me!

  • Brandi s says:

    The fact that it’s a smart phone, I’m still on a flip phone. Other than that, the long battery life. It seems these batteries don’t last near as long as they used to.

  • Jessica says:

    The battery life! I swear I have to charge my phone multiple times a day, its horrible.

  • DiAnne Sundberg says:

    Battery life is definitely a plus with a teenager who forgets to charge the phone!

    What Droid feature strikes me most? Longer battery life! I hate having to charge my phone between work and the gym so I can have some awesome music to jam while I get my heart pumping!

  • Anne says:

    The BLAZING fast speed while using the web when it’s breezy outside. Wait……

  • Katie says:

    The 8 megapixel camera sounds like the coolest feature to me!

  • Casey says:

    The battery life and storage is awesome!

    im here for the cake!
    but a cute new phone would surface 🙂

  • Kris says:

    I want to make this cake today. I too am curl challenged but I think I can give it a try. If nothing else I can add chocolate crumbs on top.
    I would love to win the phone for the excellent battery life. What a blessing a new phone would be!

    Definetly the camera. This cake is absolutely perfect! I’ve been looking for a christmas cake. It looks awesome. And those curls are way better than what I would have done.
