A chablon is a food grade silicone stencil mat used to make several simple chocolate decorations for dessert garnishing, with effortless ease … in a snap. This comes in handy if you have many items such as cupcakes, cake slices, or desserts that cry out for a little sprucing up. Chablons are usually used with chocolate transfer sheets.

Chablons can be used to create uniform wafer-thin decorations, quickly and easily. We recommend using a chablon with chocolate and a transfer sheet of course, but they have a wide range of uses including templates for chocolate, baked goods, isomalt, hard candy, royal icing, gumpaste, fondant, marzipan and more. chocotransfersheets.com

Chablons are useful accessories to have in your kitchen if you have a bakery, cupcakery, or restaurant. You can use a premade chocolate transfer sheet, or have a custom designed chocolate transfer sheet made to use with your chablon, featuring your own art or business logo.  For example, have your logo or monogram designed on a transfer sheet, and make chocolate wafers with a chablon to garnish single serving desserts.
