How do you make "white" modeling chocolate/candy clay? I realize it's best to use white chocolate, but what do you use to make it "whiter?"

Not sure of the answer, but have wanted to know the same thing myself. I always wondered if you could add white paste coloring to it after it hardens. I color all of my candy clay after it sets using americolor paste colors and it works great- just not sure about the white.

Looking forward to hearing from someone with experience.

What brand are you using? I usually use 'Candymaker' and always have white-or leasy a creamy white-clay but recently all I had was Wilton. What a difference! I'm attaching a picture of the 2 side by side, Wilton is the tan one....

Wow...what a difference! Is "Candymaker" a brand of chocolate? Where do you buy it? Has anyone tried adding the "White White Icing Color" by Wilton? Will this work?

Yes, actually here's a video of me making it with that brand so you can see what the bag looks like:

I usually buy it at a local craft store-AC Moore. I think Michaels is where I bought the Wilton brand though.

Great video! That is how I began making fondant roses...well, actually, I started making bread dough roses(thanks to Aleene's Creative Living) I applied many things from those shows to cake decorating.

Anyone remember those???

lol-I think I'm working in the opposite direction, I want to make some pies and use that rose technique with my pie crust, how cool would that be?

I would try Mercken's Superwhite candymelts. They seem to be a much softer, nicer white than other brands I've seen in my area.

Oh, that would be cool!

OT--Bread dough(in this case)= a slice of white bread or two w/ crust removed and a tablespoon of tacky glue(Aleene's tacky glue-craft section-brown bottle)
