Recently I've started using modeling chocolate in more and more of my projects. The Pink Lemonade & Pinwheels cake above... all those decorations were modeling chocolate, and this bunny topper is made out of modeling chocolate.
Modeling Chocolate can be used to make figures and decorations so it's great for cake decorating. I love that it leaves no seams, so even if there is a seam when you make something, just rub it and the warmth of your finger melts the chocolate and smooths away any seams or cracks!
If you have any left over after a project, keep it wrapped in plastic wrap, then inside a ziploc bag at room temperature.
My 17 year old son makes all of my modeling chocolate for me and he always does a fantastic job, but the video below is made by my assistant Susan 🙂
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
