Gorgeous!!! How did you dip them and look to smooth without the stick? I have tried to make just the cake balls by pouring the chocolate over the top but it came out messy? Any tips?

I think she started with dipping with a stick, and later removed it?

thanks everyone for the comments

i used to freez the balls for 30 minutes before dipping them but the problem is when they dry and the ball gets to room tempreture some of the balls will get craks on them

what you can do is melt you chocolate and then dip the ball in. take two forks and remove it from the chocolate and make sure to let all excess chocolate fall back into the bowl, have grease proof paper ready on a tray and try cooling it in the open and not the fridge as that can cause the cracks. Normally tempered chocolate shouldnt crack . very simple once you get the hang of it.’
hope it helps!

Nora, how did you get the striping? I’ve tried drizzling coating over the coating, but could never get it to look as nice as yours. Thanks.
