Flowers are a timeless cake decoration. I don't know who came up with the idea of putting flowers on a cake, but aren't you glad they did? Flowers and dessert are a great combination. In this post I'll show you how to make chocolate roses. And unlike gum past flowers, these will never be left un-eaten. All you need is modeling chocolate(I'll be using dark modeling chocolate), and clean hands.
Start by kneading the modeling chocolate until it is smooth and pliable. Form a small piece into a tear drop shape. The size of this tear drop will determine the size of the finished rose. Mine is about a teaspoon of modeling chocolate.
