Those look great.
Any tips for getting the candy coating so smooth (whenever I have used it it pools and lumps and looks terrible)
Tap the stick gently against the bowl of chocolate and it will smooth out, letting the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl... make sure the chocolate it thin enough by adding a little bit of crisco or vegetable oil first! good luck!

Awesome!  They look like real strawberries  Cheesy

How did you sculpt them?
I sculpted them by hand. Start by making a cone shape, then flip them on their sides nd round out the edges.

These are such a fun idea, and they look so delicious! I don't think I'd have the patience to make something like this. About how long did it take you?
It took a while the first time- a few hours, but depending on how much experience you have making cake bitesOyhana: I sculpted them by hand. Start by making a cone shape, then flip them on their sides nd round out the edges. it will vary how long it takes.

Gorgeous! Did you do the cakes truffle style where you make the cake and then squish it up? I've never tried before but these look so yummy!

Yes, that is exactly how I did it! So fun to make and eat!

TO START SUMMER OFF RIGHT, I DECIDED TO MAKE SOME SWEET JUICY STRAWBERRIES... OUT OF CAKE! I SCULPTED RED VELVET CAKE INTO A STRAWBERRY SHAPE AND DIPPED IN RED CANDY COATING, FOLLOWED BY A DIP IN CHOCOLATE AND A VARIETY OF TOPPINGS AND CHOCOLATE DRIZZLES, WITH GREEN FONDANT LEAVES/STEM. THEY LOOKED SO REAL AND WERE SO YUMMY! HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!
