sure, referring to certified organic food.

why do i object to organic food? i simply don't find it necessary especially it going through any amount of radiation process, but it's simply my choice , i know people buy organic food
Don't you believe the EPA article that says, "Irradiated food does not meet the definition of organic."?

If you make the cones like the others were talking about, cut the tip off (not TOO much) so it makes a little opening and (over the trash can or sink) gently squeeze until the chocolate starts coming out without air. Then just gently and slowly squeeze it across the strawberries to make the lines or designs! Hope that was helpful! :D

There is a lot of nonsense on the internet. That was why I found you a link to a reliable, government source. I may not trust all of the conclusions of the Environmental Protection Agency, but when they claim that irradiated food cannot be described as organic, I believe them.

Waxed paper has already been suggested.

Tear off a piece of waxed paper.
Fold one corner in, without creasing the paper.
Fold the other corner over without creasing the paper.
Wrap the corner around the back.
You now have a cone.
You might want to tape the last corner in place.
Fill the cone with the white chocolate.
Snip off a bit of the pointy end of the cone if necessary.

Great illustration TL! (your poor finger). You can also use food grade parchment paper as well. Making the cone small and putting only a small amount of melted chocolate in it gives a little more control when decorating with it.
