How to feather chocolate : Easy cake decorating

Play Video

Feathering is a nice simple and effective cake decorating technique. In this video I teach you how to feather chocolate, I used a white chocolate base and dark chocolate piping.

Ingredients to feather chocolate

A cake of your choice, but you can use cupcakes or cookies too

White chocolate

Dark chocolate

Method to feather icing

Bake you cake and leave it to cool

Melt some white chocolate in the microwave or over a pot of boiling water, leave it to set a bit so that it does not run of the cake

Melt some dark chocolate or milk chocolate in the same way as the white chocolate and put it in a piping bag

Pour the white chocolate on top of the cake and spread it to the edges of your cake

Cut a small hole at the end of the piping bag and then pipe the chocolate on top of the white chocolate and leave some space between the lines.

Get a toothpick and run the toothpick up one way and then up the opposite way to create the feathered design.

Leave to set before serving

You can also try to feather with icing like in this video
