Sometimes shop bought is just not enough, so I bought my own chocolate transfer sheet (some supermarkets are selling them but best to check out your locale or online bake shop)

I prepared the transfer sheet on a chopping board, the ones I had bought were in a tube so did not lay flat, so I just used some sticky tape to attached to the board to keep it flat.I melted the chocolate in a food bag, slightly massage the bag to make sure the chocolate was evenly melted then back in the

I then melted the chocolate in a food bag, slightly massage the bag to make sure the chocolate was evenly melted then back in microwave for 20 sec or so.

Once ready, cut the end of your bag and squeeze over one end the sheet and slightly spread the chocolate over to the other end of the sheet, leave for 5 mins then make your scores in the chocolate and leave to set completely.

Once set flip over and peel off the transfer sheet and break where you have made your score lines, you are ready to use and decorate your cakes, ice creams and cupcakes.

Store in a cool dark place
