Baking is a delicate art, and sometimes we all need a little help in the kitchen to make our tasty treats even more special. This awesome hack, courtesy of YouTube channel Cakes StepbyStep, is seriously cool.

In this easy-to-follow video below, you’ll not only learn how to temper chocolate, but also how to create chocolate cake decor using standard bubble wrap as a stencil, which creates an elegant basket, beehive, or even a coral look. Here, she goes for a chocolate basket cake and tops it with fresh fruit. This is something I would have never thought of myself… and it’s genius!

All you need is a clean piece of bubble wrap and melted tempered chocolate. Just make sure to use a heated knife so as not to break the chocolate when you slice into it, and to allow the chocolate to cool for at least 10 minutes before wrapping it around the cake. Your one piece of bubble wrap can be re-used.
