Do you have any candy melts?

How will the giraffe be applied? Can it be sitting where the legs don't have to be dry?

I recently made a giraffe and made it out of modeling chocolate with candy melts. The set up time is a lot quicker and the legs attach better because the legs "mold" to the chocolate. I have a pic up loaded if you want to look

Try the candy melts. They'll hold just about anything together!

I tell you something..... just when you think you know everything.... just when you think there is no way THIS can be fixed.... along comes a G_E_N_I_U_S like you and rescues me...

Worked like a charm AND I had yellow candy melts (that's the color I did the giraffe)

Thanks Sooooooooo Muchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you saved my day... the thought of having to start over was killing me (poor DH & Kids.... I took it out on them)

I dislike when I am having a problem ro doing something that's hard for me to achieve..... I treat the kids and DH all bad icon_mad.gificon_mad.gif ... I snap at them icon_evil.gificon_evil.gif .... talk sarcastically, etc... then I feel so so so so guilty icon_cry.gif but I still do it... that is NOT GOOD!! thumbsdown.gifthumbsdown.gif

sorry... need it to vent....

again thanks a million trizillion times!!!!
Have a Blessed Day/Night... thumbs_up.gif
