Hi! I just recently purchased Candy Melts to start making figures with but I was wondering if it would work like MMF or Better?
Does it harden like Fondant does ? I would like to get some feedback on this before I attempt the Figures .
**For those of you wondering what types of figures I want to attempt ... well I have a Tinkerbell Cake come up and a 1st Birthday Cake come up in the same week . I want to make the Tinkerbell and a Few Butterflies out of the Candy Melts ( Like that they can enjoy the figures as well as the Cake )**
Your Help is greatly appreciated ... Very talented and knowledgable people ....
Anyone !!! Please ... need to get started ... Just want to be reasured before i start .
You know you need to make candy clay from the candy melts in order to use it for figures.
It will harden, especially if it can be refrigerated after construction.
I think it is more susceptable to melting than dried fondant.
In my experience, if you want to make figures you are better off making them with fondant.
I agree, i would use modeling chocolate or fondant. Candy melts MELT!
Thank you all , I purchased the Candy Melts to make Chocolate Modeling Clay . That is why I posted the question .
I just wanted to have feedback to see if it would be better then Fondant.
I will be attempting a figure tomorrow , after letting the modeling Clay set overnight . I will post to let you know if it worked .
Thank you again .
I love candyclay but it can be very hard to work with. Especially after you've worked a piece for a few minutes-gets real soft. I usually mix equal parts of candyclay with fondant. This makes it a little easier to work with. Good Luck!!
I use gum paste rather than fondant for modeling figures because it hardens better than fondant.
