The importance of temperature

Temperature is key if you want to bring out the perfect velvet effect on the surface of your cakes and pastries with a chocolate spray gun mixture. The spray gun mixture should be applied on baked goods frozen at exactly -18°C to generate the right crystallisation, which in turn produces that deliciously appealing velvet-like texture. But the temperature of your chocolate spray gun mixture is crucial as well. You should always apply it at 45°C. If it's less hot, the chocolate mixture will crystallise too quickly, causing it to peel off eventually.
