Take a dessert to the next level by tossing a few (or a lot) of these delicious chocolate dark chocolate shavings by Pastry 1. These are the perfect solution for the busy pastry chef, caterer, or the home-baker who wants to take their cakes to professional heights in minutes. It’s the easiest way to decorate a cake, give a flourishing finish to a mousse, or even to add a cute and delicious touch to a whipped cream topped latte.
Also called chocolate curls, these medium-shaped shavings are the perfect size for larger desserts, making a bigger impact and having a great aesthetic appeal. Although making chocolate shavings or curls at home is easy, when you need to serve up desserts for large parties or events, having these to just open and use is a godsend and a super time-saving ingredient. You also ensure you get similar sized shavings which will give your desserts consistency – something busy chefs and restaurants will appreciate.
Add chocolate shavings to cream pies for a delectable and cute finish – these curls can make any simple pie, tart, cake, mousse or even ice cream look amazingly good and professional. We love them on a cup of hot chocolate (don’t forget the whipped cream), or even just tossed over a simple dessert of strawberries and cream. A few artfully placed shavings on cupcakes will give them a sophisticated flair, and when piled over a chocolate cake, the result is both elegant and delectable. These are not just pretty, they’re also made with fine dark chocolate, so they also add a lavish flavor to your pastries and desserts.
