Before you read this post I'm just going to tell you straight-up that I failed this project... miserably.
(but these moving pictures are pretty cool!)
A couple of months ago my cousin sent me some pictures of a chocolate ice cream bowl made from dipping balloons in chocolate. I was so excited to try them out and create an awesome step-by-step tutorial to post. I went through all the right steps (or what I thought were the right steps) but for some reason my balloons stuck to the chocolate bowls and were almost impossible to remove.
(the chocolate bowl to the left still has little balloon pieces stuck to the bottom of the bowl, which you can't see). After that happened I thought maybe if I grease up the balloon before I dip it, it won't stick so badly...but this made the balloon too slippery, the chocolate just fell right off when I tried to dip it. Then, I thought maybe my balloons are too big & thick...so I bought the water balloon size but they were so thin they would pop every time I tried to work with them!
I thought some of my photos were pretty fun so I'm going to post them anyways :)
If someone out there has ever tried this technique before please tell me what I did wrong...so I can give it one more try!
(It looks like you can find a great tutorial over at Bakerella, so try it out and let me know if yours work!)
