As Easter approaches, here’s a genius idea. Melt some chocolate in a bowl over some boiling water; pour into this cunning reusable silicone mould; pop it into the freezer for a few mins; then pop out button-shaped chocolate buttons!
They’re perfect for decorating homemade cakes, big or small; or for turning shop-bought cakes into something special. You can use milk, dark or white chocolate, and the mould makes 19 different-sized buttons each go.
You can buy it from various gift websites (such as http://www.sewwhite.com) for about £6, but if you get it straight from http://www.siliconemoulds.com it’s just £2.75 plus £2 postage. Pair it with a huge bar of Dairy Milk and it’d make a great gift for any baking or chocolate fiend.
Top tip: grease the mould with a tiny bit of butter first to make the buttons pop out even more easily.
