EMAN BANAT asked:
VERY NICE STRIPS, ANY HINT HOW COULD WE MAKE THEM THAT STRAIT
Katriens Cakes answered:
Hi Eman, I layed the chocolate paste stripes on wax paper using a ruler to guide me to make them straight and then I folded the wax paper around my cake. This is the same technique that is usually used to make a chocolate collar, i just used modelling chocolate instead of melted chocolate;-)
