This week we celebrated my dad’s birthday.  The girls wanted to help decorate the cake, so we tried something new. I traced their handwriting and drawings to make chocolate decorations.


Here’s how we did it: 

Write a message with marker on paper. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the drawings (wax paper would work too).  Trace the designs with melted chocolate.  I used a piping bag with #3 tip.  Carefully transport the parchment paper into the freezer.  Once the chocolate is hard, you can pickup each of the pieces and arrange on the cake.

What a fun way to personalize a cake for grandparents, mom or dad!
