I made a cake for my sons birthday only I have a problem... My dsd put choc on the outside of a plastic bowl to make it into a piñata cake but we can't get the chocolate 'bowl' off the plastic one.
Dsd reckons we should just put it over the cake as is and reveal the cake as a 'surprise!' type thing.
I thought perhaps we should break it up and decorate around the cake plate with big chunks of the chocolate...
Any ideas what we should do or how we might be able to 'save the bowl'. ???

Have you tried applying gentle heat to the other side of the bowl to see if that will loosen the chocolate? Did she grease the bowl?
Maybe you should just start again...

She greased it with spray oil and we have tried heat.
Maybe I should reheat the choc and make it using a balloon?

It's crushed up and melting now. I don't have any balloons left - would it work if I lined a bowl with cling wrap and set it inside that and lifted the cling wrap out when it's set?

Are you making the chocolate thick enough? I do remember taking the chocolate off the bowl was a nightmare.
