Here are some templates I just used to make (quick! [15 minutes] cheap! [$1.50] easy! not messy! pareve!) edible Sifrei Torah (Torah scrolls) from melted chocolate chips, using the technique described in the previous post about chocolate letters and cups.
I used the big one on a sheet cake, and the smaller ones on miniature cupcakes.
- This one has two pages, one for the outline of a Torah Scroll, and another with the Hebrew phrase "chag sameach" (happy holiday) that fits inside the completed scroll.
- This has nine Torah scrolls, suitable for cupcakes, or for serving alone. I just followed the clip-art roughly. The template helps as a general guideline, to get the sides even. It isn't necessary to follow the outline perfectly, or for every piece to have an identical result: chocolate template: Torah scrolls
(The instructions below are just a summary. For details, please see Adventures in Melted Chocolate.)Print the desired templates from the links above, tape printouts to cookie sheets, and tape (cut-to-size) sheet of wax paper over the picture.
Melt chocolate chips in microwave, fill (disposable) pastry bag with the melted chocolate, and trace the template shapes with it.
Chill, remove from wax paper, and enjoy!
