When I came across the recipe for Chocolate Transfer Sheet Cupcakes from Sweet and Saucy, I thought they were cute as well as they also looked so yummy. What a great party favor to get or give...you eat the dessert then take home the cup.
Transfer sheets, or "transfers" (the patterns that are decorating the top of the chocolate disc in the picture) are sturdy but flexible plastic sheets coated with a mixture of cocoa butter and FDA approved food coloring and etched with repetitive designs, such as golden swirls. They come in a wide variety of designs and colors. Some transfer sheets have a single color, like gold.
The following are some resource links for this
item, but of course you may know some in your local area.
