"Chocolate Flower Pots" Helen Cronin
17 April 2012
I was given these as a birthday gift from 2 little girls I childmind. We have enjoyed many hours baking together. I thought it would be nice to use them to make a Mother's Day gift for their mum. We coated the inside of the silicone moulds with 3 coats of melted chocolate and allowed it to set. Then we used the moulds again - this time to bake sponge cakes in. We unmoulded the cakes and slipped them into the chocolate pots and then decorated the tops with chocolate spread and marzipan flowers and leaves. A truly memorable home-made gift for mum who was absolutely delighted.
