I have seen on here how people wrap cakes with real chocolate. However, a local baker makes what he calls a chocolate wrapped cake. It's not real chocolate though...it's kinda like a fondant consistancy, but OMG, it's the best tasting white chocolate fondant type wrap I have ever had. It has a real hand wrapped look to it, and I beleive he can't do it smooth like fondant. I'll try to attach a pic, of if it doesn't work I'll do a link to his website. If anyone can point me in the right direction as to how to do this I would be MOST appreciative!!!

WOw! That is very unique & elegant! Is it modeling chocolate? It is reminiscent of some bridal gowns in style, which I really like!!

I can't imagine why you can't use candy clay instead of fondant.

It's not even that he is trying to do a pleated design...he said it's just not possible to make it completely smooth like fondant. He even wraps it like wrapping paper. He said it's very hard to work with and requires special tools/machinery, LOL...I think that was just his way of trying to get me to stop asking questions.

Here is the link to his gallery. http://chiffonos.biz/Photos%20New.html His cakes are to die for...all from scratch, never frozen...amazing results!

Jan ~ I think you are right with the candy clay. When I first tasted it I thought that's what it was. It shouldn't really be 'that' difficult to do, right? icon_confused.gif

I'll betcha it's candy clay too, it's always much more forgiving than fondant as far as being rough with it and not tearing although for me it's much harder to get it smooth because it doesn't have the same elasticity as fondant.

I'll betcha that's what he's using!

You're right though, those cakes ARE amazing!
