I decided to try my hand at making modeling chocolate this week and thanks to a great YouTube tutorial, made my first chocolate roses.

I am addicted! They were so fast and easy, yet they look amazing! (And they smell delicious too) I thought they'd be pretty with some fall gumpaste leaves on a cake I have coming up requiring a fall theme.

I'm just wondering, now that I'm obsessed with it, what are some other handy accents to make with modeling chocolate? I'm not sure I'm up to snuff with respect to sculpting people or animals... I was thinking maybe a pumpkin.

What are some things that you enjoy making?

I can not help you with the other projects since I have never used molding chocolate. However I would love to know the YouTube tutorial used. Thanks

I have used chocolate clay to make the "fixings" on a hamburger cake--pickles, onions, cheese, tomato slices, etc.
And I've used it to make tree bark and bugs for a tree stump cake.
You can use it for many of the things that you can make out of fondant. It's fun to play with, and it tastes good, too.

Well, you could actually cover your cake with it if you wanted to. I haven't bought it yet, but long ago I wanted to buy the DVD from Richard Festen:

I LOVE modeling chocolate!!! I just posted a couple of pix, one with mod.choc. roses (yes, so easy!!) and the western wedding cake with a mod.choc. rope. The best part: they taste like Tootsie Rolls!!! Must...stay...away...!!! I will take it over fondant anytime and I also use it in molds. It's all purpose, no refrigeration, keeps a long time in just a baggie, tastes delicious, easy to work with.... thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif
