When watching the chocalate decorating shows, I always see them spraying something on the chocolate to set it. Can anyone tell me what that spray can is? Also, any tutorials on molding RKT? Thanks

They are probably using cocoa butter.

I think what you're referring to might be the cans of instant freeze. Not sure what it's called or what's actually in the can, but when they spray two pieces that they want to stick together, I believe that's what it is.

No, not cocoa butter--that would just create a runny mess.

It's a food grade freeze spray that hardens the chocolate rapidly.

well...you can buy a can off those...my goodness whats the name??? if someone know what I'm talking about...it's what you spray your keyboards with to get dust off...you can find it around office supply isles or stores...it blasts air out if you hold it up-right...I found out if you spray upside down it shoots a really freezing air out that freezes, for example, chocolate which sets it immediately...I used that for my chocolate showpiece/sculpture.

It's way cheaper than that can of Magic Freeze Spray which was like $14.99 and I dont know how much is shipping...where as you can buy a can of that dust blaster for a few bucks...No offense to that poster who let us know that other great product out there...I think the other spray is better since it's listed as "food safe" but I've been using the cheaper alternative so I'm writing this only to give another option...=)

Canned air. When I tilt it too far, I get frost on my keyboard. It's in with computer stuff. Walmart carries it.

If you use this i dont' suggest eating the chocolate. As this is not food safe and has chemicals that get blown out with the air.

Ditto about not using it for anything that MIGHT OR WILL BE EATEN--I use cheaper stuff for showpieces, too.

It's just important that people also know where to find the food safe items--and when to use them.

on those shows... the masterpieces they do are for show only so they can use it freely... but when it's going to be sonsumed you need to make sure it's food grade... hth

Not only is it not food grade, but it is bitter. I used it once on some chocolate for a party trick for my daughters birthday. She spit it out, so I tried it. yuck. Read the can.....it says they but chemicals in it to be bitter to prevent huffing (i think that is what they call it) inhaling it to get high. This is why cheaper is not always better.

lol...i swore I said its another option and that the other product should be preferred because it's 'food-safe"...I didnt say you have to use it, I said I used a cheaper alternative and for other people to use the food-safe one instead.

i also said I use it on showpieces...I mean if a chocolate is going to be out in the open for display, I wont want to eat it afterward.

I meant no harm.
