- Roll the parchment paper and make sure the chocolate does not touch itself when closing the circle of parchment paper.
- Place an elastic band gently over the roll of parchment paper. Don’t squish the parchment paper or you’ll ruin your design.
- Place the chocolate garnish in the freezer for 20 minutes to set it.
- Take the elastic band off of the roll of parchment paper.
- Gently unwrap the parchment paper. Remove the chocolate garnish from the parchment paper.
