I am NOT the teacher but very keen to share snippets of information that I have picked up at workshops I go to. This one is another special from faircake – Shikhita a fabulously passionate teacher who makes chocolate decorating look like an art form.
In order to make a chocolate handbag here are the steps
Step 1 – Roll out a strip of chocolate about as wide as a ruler and about10 cm long
Step 2 – roll a kidney bean shape and place it at the bottom of the strip (this is the content of your handbag)
Step 3 – Roll the bottom end up over the handbag content
Step 5. Cut out the top fold like the riangle of an envellope.
Step 6. Fold down the flap and use a tool to make the stiching imprints
Step 7 – finally roll out 2 thin sausage shapes and wind them together to make the strap and then voila you have the finished article – a chocolate handbag – courtesy of Shikhita at Faircake (where she does loads more cupcake decorations!
