    I am doing a show tomorrow night, and the host has chosen the tiramisu brownie trifle. What do you think about instead of the stripes on top, I do rosettes with the cool whip (in the easy accent decorator), then put a chocolate covered coffee bean in the center of each rosette? Then finish it by shaving the chocolate in the rotary grater? I can get a small bag of the coffee beans for around three dollars, then use them for other parties.

    I always finished mine w/the EAD rosettes and grated chocolate over the top, using the microplane grater. Big wow factor when using a mini Hershey bar -- pop it in the grater, shave off some chocolate to cover the top, then remove the leftover chocolate bar -- always enough left for you to selfishly keep for yourself, and you have shared that mini bar of chocolate w/ everyone.

    and now, you can also add some shaved chocolate using the garlic slicer!

    You know, I had plan on using my microplane, if my last order does not come today, which has the rotary grater in it.

    I recently made a recipe in the silicone floral cupcake pan that called for 1/4 cup of chocolate chips grated on the microplane, which was easily 1/2 cup by the time I was finished grating them. Maybe I will use that instead, because when I first read the recipe, I was like "how on earth do they expect me to grate chocolate chips", but it worked beautifully. That could be a potential wow factor item!! Plus, with the "knuckle guard" (as I call it), I think PC is the only one who offers a microplane with one!!

    Thanks for your imput. I don't have the garlic slicer yet, but now I know of another use for it besides garlic. I have also heard of using the zester as well. I always love to be able to present more than one use for an item, makes it seem like they are getting a 2fer!! BTW, how do you keep the chocolate from tasting like garlic?

    the garlic slicer also works great with small pieces of pecorino romano cheese - shaved cheese - love that product. and agree with you about the microplane with the guard. did a party yesterday and used it and someone asked me how often I used it. Use it at as many shows as I can and she couldn't believe how sharp it was as hers has already dulled! Love this stuff.:love:

    not sure about keeping the chocolate from tasting like garlic - just wash it well - kitchen brush is great for this since it is so sharp - or dish washer - I never eat anything I make at parties so who knows - lol.

    Yeah, I bought the microplane before becoming a consultant, because of the many uses I could get out of it: grated nutmeg, garlic (in place of the press), chocolate, zesting citrus fruits, grating hard cheeses like pecorino or parmesan....
