Acetate strips are perfect for making chocolate colours for your cakes.

Colour your chocolate with flo-coat and Americolor gel colour to make colourful designs with chocolate and use the acetate strips to get that fantastic shine after setting.

Great chefs commonly use acetate sheets to put stunning finishing touches on cakes, candies and other desserts. Bakers use the sheets by spreading a thin layer of chocolate or candy onto a sheet, which can then be picked up and moulded into fanciful shapes or placed on baked goods. In this way, chefs can create chocolate cut-outs, wraps and decorations for their pastries. It's even possible to print designs on the acetate and then use them as "transfer sheets" for your desserts.


1. Cut the acetate sheet into shapes that will fit the cakes you're trying to cover. For example, if you have a round cake, you can cut a circle for the top and long strips for the sides.

2. Place the pieces of the acetate sheet flat on the counter on top of a piece of foil or wax paper.

3. Pour a thick layer of melted chocolate or liquid candy on the pieces and use a spatula to spread it evenly onto the acetate sheet. The candy will bleed over the edges onto the foil or wax paper beneath.

4. Leave the sheets to stand to allow the chocolate or candy to set for about five to 10 minutes until it is partially hardened but still very flexible. If you wait too long, the chocolate will become too firm to mould around your    cake.

5. Lift each piece of acetate sheet very carefully and press the candy-coated side against your baked goods.

6. Place the entire cake, with the acetate sheets firmly in place, into the refrigerator and wait 30 minutes or until the candy has completely hardened.

7. Peel the acetate sheets off the cake very carefully. The chocolate or candy must stay on your cake while you peel away the acetate sheets and discard them.
