I plan to cover my cake with Choco-pan because of the flavor. However, I've never worked with it before. I will be applying cutouts (that will be created before I assemble the cake) to the sides of the cake. Some of them will extend beyond the top of the tier. The sides of one entire tier will be covered with these.

What I need to know is whether Choco-pan will dry hard enough to stand up without flopping over when I attach it. I'd rather not use another fondant if I don't have to.

I use a white chocolate fondant and if I cut out the pieces and let them sit for an hour or more, then I can attach them and have them stand up above the top edge of the cake. I would think it would be no problem.

I haven't had a problem with it, but just to be on the safe side, add gumpaste! It drys very hard and quickly too! Good luck!
