Chocolate leaves (part 2)

Following on with my decorations, this week I have been practicing hand piped chocolate leaves.  My last leaves were painted on to actual leaves to create the decoration and the detailed veins.  Today I am actually piping the leaves and also using cocktail sticks to give the leaves a bit more detail.

Although this looks simple it does take practice and hopefully I should soon be able to create a bake that tastes amazing and looks absolutely stunning.

I’ll end now as it’s time to get ready for the Great Sport Relief Bake Off.
