Drizzled fudge gives a gourmet look?
Roll a pan liner into a cone to create a piping bag.
Pour a small amount of freshly-made or microwave-softened fudge into the bag’s opening.
Crunch down the top and squeeze the fudge out of the point.
To create a drizzle, start in a corner of the pan and move the piping bag quickly across the surface of the fudge in a diagonal pattern.
You can also drizzle without using a piping bag. Put a small amount of freshly-made from the kettle or microwave-softened fudge into a container and thin it with a little water.
Starting in the corner of the pan, quickly pour the fudge in the container across the surface of the fudge in a diagonal pattern.
Simple decorating techniques spark interest and increase the perceived value of your fudge. Perk up a plain looking slab of fudge by drizzling the same flavor fudge or a contrasting color across the surface of the fudge. It adds dimension and visual appeal.
You don’t have to be an artist to be able to create eye-catching fudge that’s swirled, drizzled or topped with scrumptious candy pieces. Learn how to turn a slab of fudge into your canvas as you add visual appeal.
Selling fudge awareness ribbons – whether at retail or for fundraising -- is a wonderful and unique way to combine a delicious product that everyone loves with charitable giving.
