How to use Chocolate Transfer Sheets
What are Chocolate transfer sheets?
Chocolate transfer sheets are a quick and easy way to create pretty and vibrant patterns on your chocolates. They have a cocoa butter design printed on one side.
What size do transfer sheets come in?
Measuring 300mm (L) x 200mm (W) enabling you to create transfers long enough to go around a cake, or in many smaller designs for decorations on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, chocolates etc.
How do i use them?
The pattern is printed in cocoa butter on one side only, and this side should be placed uppermost onto a suitable work surface.
It is preferable to temper your chocolate first to achieve a glossy, professional finish.
Then melt it and pour over the transfer sheet, and spread in a thin, even layer. The design then transfers to the chocolate giving a lovely shiny pattern. Leave this until nearly set, approx 10 mins, or may be speeded up in the fridge, and then cut into shape(s) required, using a sharp knife or cutters. Do not attempt to remove at this stage!
Leave to set completely before using (at least 30 mins or speed up in the fridge). If a large shape is required, such as a cake collar to go around a cake, it may be more economical if you cut the transfer sheet first, saving the rest of the sheet for further use!
Store flat if possible, or rolled, in a cool, dry place.
