  1. H, I’ve tried making curls with vegetable peeler before but the curls aren’t as chunky and big like yours. What temperature should the chocolate bar be? Room temp/cooler?

      hi Jen, i followed instructions on the book. it says temperature is important, to microwave the block for few seconds, etc, etc.

    Jenn, there’s also a temp in the Cake Bible, in the back section on decorative techniques. If they’re small, light-colored and breaking into shards, it’s too cool. If they’re dark, soft and won’t curl, it’s too warm (but warm ones can often be coaxed to curl with a cold knife or spatula).
