I am going to make a farm cake with the animals for a birthday party. I would like to try something new and think using one of these two would be fun. I've never made MMF or modeling clay. I was wondering which would be easier to work with considering what I am making. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I personally have not worked with modeling chocolate/clay, but have made figures from MMF. I loved it and found it quite easy. Of course I'm a pre-school teacher and play with playdough quite a bit, and this had that same feel to me, of fresh playdough, so maybe that was why I liked it. icon_biggrin.gif

I would rather use modeling chocolate b/c it holds it's shape better. I have mixed modeling choc with fondant/gumpaste too and it worked fine. I know plenty of people model things with MMF but I haven't had the best results...can't get it thin enough and it tends to wilt.
