Halloween Chocolate Bats

I thought I’d do something simple and fun this Halloween. Say hello to my chocolate bats! Halloween Cake 2 The process is fairly straightforward – pretty much the same method as the chocolate butterflies that I have made in the past with a different template and some flower wire. Also, the eyes of the bats are drawn in with toothpicks dipped in edible gold dust and vodka. If you’re desperate for a template – any template – to get started now, below is a scanned sheet of my roughly sketched bats and tree stump. I will eventually attempt to make a proper template but for now this will just have to do, internet people! Chocolate Bat Template I also tried out a new chocolate cake recipe which was amazing. The cake turned out extremely moist and dense with no grief in regards to technique or complex ingredients. Recipe from here. Halloween Cake 3 In terms of photography, I set up a black board on the dining table as below and took the photograph with a 60mm f2.8 lens. photo I hope you guys enjoyed this little project – I had fun making it. It’s been a while since I did anything fancy.
