I am not sure if this has already been asked, but what would one use modeling chocolate for,instead of using gumpaste or fondant?
Is it better for certain applications compared to fondant or gumpaste?
Just curious sometimes you see cake decoraters using both on the same cake and I was wondering the difference.
Thanks for any and all feedback.
I find the modeling chocolate easier to mold with. It's a lot easier for me to get smooth lines. I guess it's just a personal preference
I used only modeling chocolate on a pirate ship cake I did recently, and it was a lot easier than dealing with fondant because you can shape it and it stays in place without having to dry. http://acaketorememberva.blogspot.com/2010/03/pirate-ship-cake.html
