Now, you too can make your Favorite Dessert with a Velvety Texture

Which one you’ll go for: Your favorite cake with a regular and plain effect or one with a nice velvety texture? We always prioritize the desserts which are soothing to our eyes. Knowingly or unknowingly, we usually made this perception that a dessert that looks amazing look-wise will definitely taste amazing.

Don’t let your customer or for whomsoever, you are making the dessert, give a second thought. And you know what the good news is? You can easily get that eye-pleasing velvety texture using this brilliant source called velvet spray. And for those who don’t know what it is and how to use it, we are here with everything you want to know.

About Technique

Have you ever tried layered mousse cakes, which are also known as Entremets? Well, the dessert is mainly famous with French patissiers who create that beautiful layer using a technique called ‘Flocking’. The technique is basically used to coat the desserts with a fine velvety texture.

A spray is used for the same that disperse small drops of colored and flavored cocoa butter. The best thing about using the spray is that it not only helps you in giving your show-stopper dessert but also help it to retain its moisture.

Also, if you want to step in into the professional’s shoes try using your own spray gun and mix the cocoa butter yourself, as they do. And trust me if you can boil water you can even prepare the spray gun mixtures. It is that easy. What, you don’t believe me? Check this recipe given below and see yourself that I am not lying.

But before you learn the process, learn a few golden rules you should keep in mind for preparing the mixture.

Rule 1: Always see that you’re only using chocolate with 3-drop fluidity.

Rule 2: Do not overlook the ’60-40’ proportions because only that way you’ll get a fluid mixture. And ultimately it will pass through your spray gun nozzle with great ease.

Rule 3: Make sure you heat the mixture at 50ᵒ C otherwise it might set and clog up your spray gun.

Rule 4: If you wish to use a colored mixture, you should use fat-soluble coloring.

Rule 5: Don’t forget to heat your spray gun in the chocolate melter before you pour down the mixture.

Rule 6: The mixture should only be applied on pastries frozen at 18ᵒ C. The reason being, resulting thermal shock is really crucial to give that velvet effect.

Rule 7: Make sure you always store the spray gun in the heating cabinet even after spraying.

Rule 8: Try creating a thin layer because a thick one is inclined to peel off.

What you’ll need:

  • Chocolate with a basic 3-drop fluidity
  • A scale
  • A spray gun
  • A spatula
  • Cocoa butter
  • A thermometer
  • A stick blender
  • An empty chocolate melter, covered with a lid
  • A sieve (fine mesh)

Instructions:

  • First, you need to measure out your ingredients. Ensure that you have 60% chocolate and 40% cocoa butter.
  • Then you need to melt both the ingredients together in the microwave.
  • Make sure you don’t forget to stir the mixture halfway through. This will allow your ingredients to mix well together.
  • Put it back into the mixture and stir until you get a smooth and heterogeneous mixture.
  • Just see if your mixture is at 45ᵒ C then you’re ready to apply it.
  • Bring your pre-heated spray gun from the chocolate melter and pour down the mixture into the spray gun container through the sieve immediately.
  • Now, take your hollow figures out from the freezer and create a thin layer of the mixture on your dessert. Make sure you do it in a smooth upward and downward seesaw motion.
  • Let your goodies rest in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes at 8ᵒ C.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching
    to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
