Do you mean ganache or chocolate clay? I think both recipes are in the gallery.

Hello,
It is similar to chocolate clay but not as chewy. I think chocolate clay is used more for modelling and not covering.

White chocolate is not chocolate, hence, white chocolate plastique is notoriously difficult to get to work properly ..

recipe 1
8 oz white chocolate
¼ cup light corn syrup

or

recipe 2
8 oz white chocolate
1/3 cup light corn syrup

Your choice ..

How about Satin Icing ?
Nigella has a recipe - and it is quite versatile.
http://www.nigella.com/recipe/recipe_detail.aspx?rid=13328

Some things
1. "do not over boil at this stage" is a pivotal direction
2. it is softer than rolled fondant, it can be flavoured, and any problems in covering the cake are easier to fix than rolled fondant.
3. cover the cake using the same technique that you would use for marzipanning ..
4. buff the cake with cornflour to produce a satiny-smooth finish ..

Pale lavender, lemon yellow, and pale apple green satin icing looks especially spectacular with fresh flowers ..
