How to Make Chocolate Flowers for Easter day 2024

These beautiful flowers made of chocolate coating are easy to make and look amazing.

– The cake that we used in today's tutorial is an 8 inch tier frosted with our classic vanilla buttercream. It is resting on it's own cake cardboard cut to the size of the cake so that I could easily move the chilled cake from the turntable to the cake stand. – Candy Coating- I used Candiquik brand (I used 4 blocks- approximately 8 oz) – Candy Color- (oil based) I used Wilton brand in Pink and Green- You could also use pre-colored candy melts/coating – Silicone Pastry Brush -optional- for texturing the buttercream – Tapered offset spatula – Egg – plastic wrap – cookie sheet is helpful – Silicone mold (optional) – Silicone Pastry Brush (optional) - I used for texture – Mugs or small bowls for creating wells for forming flower – aluminum foil – Miscellaneous: Turntable (optional), disposable piping bags, small paintbrush, offset spatula, everclear or vodka (for painting leaves-optional), cake cardboard- optional- mine is on it's own cake board for easily transferring cake from turntable to pedestal.),


Outside of small round silicone moulds, wrap eggs in plastic wrap or grease them. Melt the candy coating in the microwave.

I like to start with 30 seconds and stir, then add more time in 30 second increments until the chocolate is almost fully melted. Stir to finish melting.

Swirl chocolate with pink candy colouring gel. After dipping in chocolate, place eggs or moulds on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Put in the fridge for 15 minutes or until it gets firm. Open the eggs and take off the chocolate petals. Take them out of the plastic moulds too.

If you need to make the petals firmer before putting the flowers together, put them in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Put melted candy coating to the bottom of the foil-covered cup and small bowl well. Make flowers with the leaves and apply additional sugar coating as needed.
