Those Chocolate Cake Decorating Straws are called Cigarellos

You learn something new every day - a prime example was the fact that those fancy chocolate straws (or twirls) which you can use to decorate the sides of cakes etc are actually called Cigarellos.

I learnt this after watching the Baking Made Easy programme on the BBC with Lorraine Pascale the other night.

Even more interesting is the fact that, depending on which online retailer you get them from, you can get them in Milk, Dark and White Chocolate.

I was fortunate enough to come across them at The Chocolate Trading Co - amongst their tantalising selection of some of the world's finest chocolates, they do offer the Cigarellos in Dark, Milk and White chocolate, so whatever your taste or decorating needs (a mixture of dark/white chocolate Cigarellos alternating round the side of a cake looks superb), then these guys have what you need.

They offer next day delivery and the goods I've ordered from them before have always arrived well packed and in perfect condition.
