Introduction: Valentine Chocolate Covered Strawberry Arrangement
This is an entry in the
Gluten Free Challenge
Hello! I will be showing you all how I make a chocolate covered strawberry arrangement which I believe is called a strawberry tower. There is also a link to the video that you can watch, and I want to encourage you all to subscribe to my channel and like the video as well! :) I love doing this and am always open to baking suggestions!
Here is what you'll need:
Red candy melts
23 oz white chocolate chips
Disposable Decorating bag
Sugar like sprinkles (red and white)
8 inch Cake board
Styrofoam cone (11 7/8 X 3 15/16 In)
Step 1: Melt White Chocolate
Using the double boiler method (bowl of chocolate over a pot of hot HOT water), melt your white chocolate and add two capfuls of vegetable oil to loosen it up and make sure to stir it in well!
Step 2: Dunking
Next, I insert toothpicks in my strawberries to help me with dunking and shake as much excess off as I can.
Step 3: Decorating
Now with this part, there are 3 different techniques I use to decorate the strawberries. I take melted red chocolate (candy melts) in a piping bag and:
1 - pipe back and forth horizontally across the strawberry
2 - pipe back and forth horizontally again across the strawberry, use a toothpick and go from end to tip and tip to end around whole the strawberry
3 - while the strawberry is still wet, dunk it in sprinkles
I stick these strawberries on a styrofoam sheet
Step 4: Decorating the Cone
For this cone, I have taken the biggest strawberries and stuck them at the bottom at a 45 degree angle, and as I go up the cone I tilt the strawberries up each row, the video is very helpful for this part!
Step 5: The Top
I stick a toothpick at the top of the cone and then I place ribbon through the toothpick and twirl it down and stick it under the tower.
Step 6: Strawberry on Top
Now the last thing that I do, is I take more ribbon and form a bow like figure by going back and forth on the toothpick and placing a strawberry on top to hold it down.
Step 7: It's Complete!
This should be the finished product! Don't forget to like and subscribe to my channel ! :)
