We have a fun Sunday afternoon project for you to try today.Â We mentioned in a previous post that we would be posting a DIY project for Chocolate Covered Oreos Mini Wedding Cakes.Â So with no further delay, here it is.
To make these adorable cakes you will need mini cheesecake molds or a multi tiered cake pan.
The ingredients are:
Candy Confectionary Melts ( Your can use genuine chocolate, however the chocolate should be tempered prior to adding to the mold.Â
Melt your chocolate or candy wafers by coarsely chopping and place into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1 minute, then stir well. Continue to microwave for 15 to 30 second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until smooth. For best results, do not overheat the chocolate, and avoid introducing moisture.
Once your chocolate has been melted, use a craft paint brush and carefully “paint” the white or colored chocolate into the mold designs. After filling each design, tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. Â Â Let cool.
Once your painted design chocolate has cooled, fill the mold cavities approximately 1/3 full with the contrasting colored chocolate or candy wafers. Tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. If you’ve painted the designs, avoid re-melting them by filling the cavities with chocolate that’s as cool as possible, and tap the mold very gently as this can also cause the colors to bleed together. Press the Oreo cookie into the chocolate, and center it in the mold cavity, horizontally and vertically. As you press the Oreo into the mold cavity, the chocolate will rise up around the sides, embedding the cookie, and leaving only the top uncovered.
Pour the chocolate over the embedded Oreo, completely filling the mold, and covering the cookie. Gently tap the mold onto the table to settle the chocolate, and remove any trapped air. If necessary, level the chocolate by scraping away the excess with a silicone spatula. After the chocolate has hardened, chill the mold in the refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes. Turn the mold upside down and press on the back of the cavity to release the chocolate covered Oreos.
Decorate as you wish with cake decorating items, such as sprinkles and sugar flowers.Â You will need to dab a little melted chocolate on sugar flowers or pearls.
