CHOCOLATE FLAMINGOS

Flamingo chocolate decorations are simple to make. I used pink candy melts to make the wings and the neck.

making chocolate wings
  • Fill the piping bag with melted pink chocolate candy melts.
  • Pipe a large dot onto a parchment paper and then with a small spatula or a spoon shape the wings.
  • Make 2 wing sizes. One should be slightly smaller.
  • Pipe the neck and the head.
  • Let the chocolate harden. I put in the fridge to set for couple of minutes.
  • Glue the wing and the neck together with chocolate.
  • Attach second smaller wing on top of the larger wings
  • Brush Pink Luster and Pink Jewel Dust onto the chocolate
  • Use melted white and dark chocolate candy melts to make the beak and the eye. Let chocolate harden.
  • Carefully remove Pink Chocolate Flamingos from the parchment.
  • Store them in an airtight container layered between

RASPBERRY CURD FILLING

Fill the tarts with Raspberry Curd. Fit the piping bag with a large star tip and fill it with pink Swiss Meringue. Pipe a pretty rose swirl onto each tart.

  1. Those flamingos are inspired! And the basic wing and neck combo could easily make swans as well.

  2. You are Artist! I am so impressed… First time i’m gonna make dessert with swiss meringue and i am wandering… Schouldn’t i bake the meringue before serving?

    1. Hi Paulina,
      Swiss Meringue is made using egg whites that have been brought to a safe temperature, there is no need to bake it before, unless you’d like to make meringue cookies. Those, yes indeed are baked until they are dry. Thank you. Keep me posted how it goes. Have a great day.

  3. Oh My Goodness! You are Just So Talented… I get so Inspired …Thank YOU!!!~ These Are Adorable!!! I Just have to try to make them…
