Step 20 - Text Reflection

This is how your text should look. Now we will add the reflection. Now on your fourth 'Chocolate' Layer (make it visible) bring up your Layer Styles and change the Color Overlay to Black #000000

step-0020

On this layer go to Edit > Transform > Distort and flatten the text like the image below.

step-0020a

Take this layer and place it underneath your Chocolate Text Effect. Once you have done this, Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur (7.2px). Change the Layer settings to Soft Light and a Opacity of 50%

step-0020b
step-0020c

To bring out the reflection a bit more grab your Burn tool (25px, Range:Shadows, Exposure: 46%) And on your 3rd 'Drips' Layer 'Convert it to a Smart Object' and 'Rasterize' it. In the image below I have circled the areas in red that I have brushed in some burn areas.

Step 21 - Cherries on Top

Now we are done with the that! We are almost finished, hang in there with me. Time to add the cherries. First create a New Layer and call it 'Cherry' make sure that this layer is above the 'Chocolate' text and 'Drips' layer. Grab your Brush Tool (a Hard Round Brush, I used 97px brush) and place it wherever you like on your canvas. #f50000

step-0021

Now with your 'Cherry' layer selected go to Edit > Transform > Warp and try and get your cherry like the picture below.

step-0021a

Now once you have shaped your circle like a cherry grab your Burn tool again (25px soft brush, Shadows, Exposure:22%) and shade in the area like my cherry below.

step-0021b

Double click your 'Cherry' layer so that the Layer Styles box pops up and add the Inner Shadow

step-0021c
step-0021d

Step 22 - Time to make this cherry shine!

Create a New layer on top of your 'Cherry' layer and name this layer 'Shine.' Grab your Brush Tool (27px soft brush #ffffff) and make a circle motion on this 'Shine' layer. Put the Layer Opacity at 48%.
