How To Make a Chocolate Brushstroke Cake | Cupcake Jemma

This technique is so fun and simple, you’ll be wanting to decorate EVERYTHING with chocolate brush strokes! It’s a great way to add drama to a cake, and so fun to play with different colour schemes too.

You will need…
Good quality White Chocolate
Superwhite Powder (I use Sugarflair)
Food colouring – Oil based is best, then powder, paste/gels are ok but not as good as previous two ๐Ÿ˜‰
Baking sheet lined with parchment
lil’ spatulas
Wide flat paint brush OR palette knife
A cake, duh!
More melted white choc for sticking

    My nine-kyear old daughter and I love watching your videos. We are having so much fun learning from you and baking together. We had a quick question, we noticed that you trim your cake rounds. If you are using an 8" cake tin, what size round are you using to trim your cakes? Thank you again for sharing your videos!

    Hi Jemma ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for this awesome tutorial. Would you mind clarifying what you mean by "good quality" chocolate? I've been wondering for a while whether it is possible to temper store bought slabs of chocolate and if so, are there requirements for those or can I literally use anything?
    Also, if I wanted to do this with milk or dark chocolate, the question is the same. Can I temper any chocolate or does there need to be a certain amount of cocoa butter in order for it to work properly.

    Thanks again, I love your channel!

    Hi Jemma. I'm a massive fan of your baking. You have actually inspired me to go back to college to learn how to bake. Next month, I will be taking my synoptic test in pastry.
    one of the unit require Danish pastry. I'm thinking of doing cream horn filled with crรจme patisserie but I struggle with the technique of putting the pastry on the cone. is it possible you could do a masterclass of Danish pastry. i.e different Danish pastry style and specially creamed horn. it would help me a lot to pass my exam being able to produce a better produce. thanks so much.
