Recently I’ve started using modeling chocolate in more and more of my projects, like the Pink Lemonade & Pinwheels cake above… all those decorations were modeling chocolate.
And at some point in the future, I hope to do my own modeling chocolate tutorial, but this week I’m going to be using this tutorial and fun video by Shawna McGreevy for How to Make Modeling Chocolate.
My 17 year old son makes all of my modeling chocolate for me and he usually does much smaller batches than this, but THIS week, I have to have a huge batch of white for an upcoming project, so he’ll be doing it Shawna’s way. Ultimately I’ll get his input on which method he likes better (although honestly, they’re pretty similar except for the quantity differences).
Anyway, I’m sharing her video… because she’s awesome and love her and let’s face it, I’m also being lazy 😉
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 40 oz. of candy melts (I use Wilton)
- 8 oz. corn syrup
- Large microwaveable bowl
- Silicone Spatula (these are my FAVORITES!!)
- Plastic wrap
Watch the video “How to Make Modeling Chocolate” here:
Wasn’t that fun? I just love the music that she has playing in all of her videos!! And her smile and personality are just infectious… I’m hoping to see her and maybe meet her at Cake Fest in February (fingers crossed!!).
Have you made modeling chocolate? What do you think? Any questions? Let me know!
