Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Special Extra
Garnish cake with white and dark chocolate curls. Warm 1 oz. Baker's White Chocolate by microwaving it, unwrapped, on MEDIUM for a few seconds or just until you can smudge the chocolate with your thumb. . Hold the chocolate piece steadily, then draw a vegetable peeler slowly over the flat bottom of the chocolate piece, allowing a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom to make long, delicate curls. Repeat with Baker's Premium 70% Cacao Dark Chocolate.
Special Extra
Garnish this stunning cake with Tuxedo Strawberries.
