Step 1: Finding the Picture
- Printer and paper
- white parchment paper
- baking spray or oil
- cutting board
- white chocolate
- dark chocolate
- clean thin paintbrushes
Find the picture you'd like to paint, or take it yourself.
Pictures with high contrast work best.
With a picture editing software, make it a black and white picture.
Then turn up the contrast so much that it only has two colors: Black and white.
Flip it horizontally and print the result.
As an alternative, if you google pumpkin carving patterns, you may find some nice pictures that you can print directly.
Now tape the picture to the cutting board.
Step 2: Preparing the Picture
Put some cooking spray or oil on a kitchen towel, and wipe the parchment paper with it to lightly grease it.
Step 3: Melt the Chocolate
Step 4: Painting the White Areas
Put it in the fridge until it is completely hardened.
Step 5: Adding the Dark Chocolate
Let this harden completely as well.
Step 6: All Done!
You can use this as a cake topper, or just a piece of candy.
