Hi lovelies, it is time for a new cake basics tutorial and today I want to take the mystery out of making a chocolate drip. I was first really intimidated by this technique but once you learn the tips and tricks it turns out to be a very easy technique. Chocolate drip cakes might not be as trending anymore as they used to but this is my favourite cake decoration technique as I think it goes with so many other designs and decorations and it just looks great. I hope this tutorial will help you to perfect chocolate drip and will give you the confidence to create beautiful chocolate drip cakes. If you felt like this tutorial didn’t cover all of the points and didn’t answer all of the questions you have when it comes to chocolate drip cakes, let me know in the comments and I will be happy to help you further 😊 Have fun decorating cakes!
I used 30g good quality dark chocolate (70%) and about 30-50g cream. This was enough to make the chocolate drips and to cover the top of the cake (16cm cake). When making a bigger portion calculate always first 1:1 chocolate to cream ratio and make sure to have some extra cream on hand as you will most likely need to add more to get the right consistency (see video).
If you have any questions to this recipe please feel free to ask me in the comments.
