Just made white molding chocolate for the first time using golden syrup instead of light corn syrup. Can't find it here in England. Anyways since I've never used it or made it before I was wondering if anyone else has and if so how long does it normally take to dry and does it get hard?

Hi , Im from Ireland . I managed to get corn syrup over the internet . Ive only made modelling chocolate once . It took quite a while to firm up. I think the best thing to do would be to put it in a freezer bag and leave it to firm up at room temperature overnight or at least for a few hours . Mine tasted fantastic but I found it difficult to work with. Very messy and melty . Good luck icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the fast reply. Made it last night n has been in the fridge since. . I've made some rattles for a baby shower cake this morning but the chocolate is still pretty soft. . I thought the chocolate would have hardened by now, guess I will give it till the end of the day tomorrow. Fingers crossed they harden a bit so I can paint them.

I know what u mean, its all I think about. Its a very expensive hobby, Amazon has me on speed delivery. Lol. Even have my husband getting involved, while I'm @ work in the evenings he's baking the cakes so I can decorate them over the weekend. He's got the Cake Boss cake recipe down to perfection. Lightest cake I've ever had, that's saying a lot

Ha ha. My husband just said to me last night, we have to stop making all these practice cakes. He said he's getting fat. Like a man with some meat on his bones. Lol.
Have u ever used those dummy cakes, just not the same.
