Chocolate “Wax” Seal Mini Monogramed Cakes

We bought plain petit fours from our local bakery and personalized them by making little “wax” seals out of chocolate. Fun, right? We used a monogrammed wax seal found on etsy and pressed the seal into semi-melted chocolate.

Are you a cake kind of person or are you planning to serve some desserts in addition to or instead of the standard wedding cake? Although, when it comes down to it, petit fours are pretty much in the cake category…. But still…they’re a fairly alternative choice for a wedding.

    This is absolutely adorable, and such an easy/inexpensive way to add a little personal touch! I had a bride suggest this to me the other day, and I’m really excited to try it out!

    This is a wonderful idea!

    But I’m wondering…. How do you begin with it?
    Do you melt the chocolate first?
    and make drops with it? And then when they’re almost hard again, you press the seal in it?

      I am also curious exactly which moment do you press seals onto chocolate? and do you make the sealed chocolates and then apply on petit fours?

        I would take a sheet of wax paper and make several dots of chocolate (you could use a piping bag for uniformity). When the dots are almost set, quickly make the seals. These can be done weeks ahead and stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place. When you are ready to use, just peal off of the wax paper and add a dot of melted chocolate to *glue* them to petit fours or cookies or cake pops! Perfect addition to a dessert table!

    I’ve tried making the chocolate seal without success. The chocolate sticks onto
    the stamper. I’ve tried using Pam to grease it but that didn’t work. I’ve tried using saran wrap but that made the chocolate dull. Please help. I am trying to make these for my daughter birthday party.
    Thanks!

      I had the same problem when I used the Wilton candy melts. I put one on wax paper and microwaved it until is was a little warm then pressed the stamp, but it just got the stamp all messy. Nothing like the pictures above!
