Chocolate collars going around the outside of a cake are simply one of the fastest and easiest ways to take a cake from ordinary to fabulous! Got five minutes, chocolate and wax paper? You're good to go.
5oz. Chocolate of your choice
Making the chocolate band is super easy! My recommendation is keeping the chocolate decently thick, so then when it hardens fully, it won't break. 🙂 For my birthday cake I cut a strip of wax paper that goes around the cake, and made the band extra tall, melted some chocolate, smoothed it on, and then refrigerated for five minutes....CAREFULLY picked it up, wrapped it around and then crinkled in the chocolate. I loved the effect but getting the wax paper pulled off after it set was a tad bit tricker.
