White Chocolate Shavings

By on Friday, January 25th, 2013

I don’t know why I’ve never thought of this, but I love it. These white chocolate shavings make a positively elegant cupcake garnish! This photo is courtesy of foodie photographer Esther Fox. And just in case you’ve never played with chocolate shavings before, it is super easy! Just use your vegetable peeler. Then, the next time you go to peel carrots, you’ll have an irresistible cupcake craving!

New Pearl Color Mist

I’ve been using Wilton Color Mist spray on food coloring for a while now. They make decorating easy and everyone thinks I’m a magician. But now they have pearl Color Mist, and this one is hard to beat! It gives the frosting a shimmering look, just perfect for the princess parties in your future! And as a bonus, it made my hand look a little like the tin man.
