I am making a flourless chocolate cake with ancho chili powder. I have made the cake many times and it always gets great reviews. My problem comes with Decorating the cake.
Traditionally, I have dusted cocoa and powdered sugar in a pattern on the cake. I would somehow like to decorate the cake to reflect that it has chili powder in it. Perhaps making a chili pepper out of some edible confection for the top
Any good ideas on what I can do?
You can melt white chocolate and color it. Then pipe a pattern of a southwest scene (cactus, etc) or a chili pepper
