Step 6: Chocolate Mockingjay

-  Melt chocolate chips in a piping bag.  Be careful - the chocolate will be hot.
-  Pipe out the design you want onto a piece of parchment paper.
-  Cool the chocolate in the refrigerator for at least 10 minutes.
-  Carefully peel the chocolate off the parchment paper and place chocolate on cupcake.

*** NOTE: Make sure your chocolate design is thick.  Mine were a little too thin and collapsed after several minutes.  It also didn't help that it was a hot day.
Have you considered tempering your chocolate? Chocolate without cocoa butter, including most chocolate chips, cannot sustain it's form at room temperature.<br><br>Brilliant guide though!
<p>mmm that looks good</p>
Lovely piping on the chocolate mockingjay. Piping chocolate designs can be tricky. It looks beautiful :)
your mokingjay is perfect and i love how you used the orange icing as fire <br>BTW i read the books before they were cool
How did the hipster burn his tongue? <br> <br>He drank his coffee <i>before it was cool</i> <br> <br>But I'm just teasing n.n I got the book just after it was released, no one I knew had read it yet. It's fun to have read it first, huh?
It's great! BTW it's in my guide &quot; Cupcakes!&quot;
Fantastic! And your mockingjay is ooh so good!
