How to make chocolate cases

For this recipe shooting, I placed the cupcakes into edible chocolate cases. They are easy peasy made. All you need are single cupcake cases, ideally made from silicone. Take double the number of the number of cupcakes you want to bake.

  • Melt the chocolate of your choice in a water bath while stirring constantly.
  • Then take a kitchen brush and quickly stroke the liquid chocolate into the inner surface of the cupcake moulds. Make sure everything is covered.
  • When you have spread all the moulds in this way, put them all in the freezer to speed up the hardening process.
  • After about 20 minutes take them out and spread a second layer of liquid chocolate on them, and put them back in the freezer.
  • After another hour you can remove them and carefully separate the mould from the chocolate.

You will have perfect, edible chocolate cups. Keep them in the refrigerator until you need them.

I served these cupcakes in edible chocolate cases which I made by melting chocolate and coating silicone moulds before placing in the freezer to set. Once set, peel off the moulds and keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
I made the raspberry sauce by blitzing fresh raspberries with a touch of lemon juice and icing sugar to taste and then passing through a sieve to remove any seeds.
