Armenian Chocolate Letters - Easy Cake Decorating Idea

Armenian Chocolate Letters


Armenian Chocolate Letters


Used these chocolate letters to decorate my recently uploaded Armenian cake Mesrop Mashtots YouTube Video. Nothing difficult, but thought I’d put down a few quick instructions, in case someone decides to use the same chocolate letters for their cake. Since I didn’t temper the chocolate, overall process was very quick and easy, but not tempered chocolate sets better when placed in fridge for a few minutes, as for the regular candy melts, those set even faster and you don’t even have to refrigerate.
