I'm looking to wrap a cake in chocolate that I've rolled out. Is there any pros and cons of making modeling chocolate with candy melts vs. standard chocolate? Thanks!!!

Sorry you never got an answericon_sad.gif I'm not tht much of a choco connoisseur(sp?) to really tell the difference. I know some cheap brands of candy melts have a more waxy taste but that's all I can tell.

use real chocolate. (ps. bumping yourself up that many times - especially so close together - just looks to the rest of us like you have gotten a bunch of responses)

Sorry everyone, I didn't post that many responses intentionally. It was a bug on the site earlier on in the day. I'm obnoxious, but not that obnoxious. icon_wink.gif
