Episode 106: Chocolate Treats

Remember our name is Bake, Decorate AND Celebrate – and chocolate is a big part of that equation. Its not just cakes, today we feature chocolate treats from lollipops to candy shells. Take chocolate one step farther with clusters, drizzling and dipping plus adding sprinkles and sugars. Chocolate is wonderful as an accent – on cakes, cookies, and even as a place card.
