I have a Spongebob cake due this Saturday. Do you recommend making the figures out of gumpaste or modeling chocolate? Or should I make them out of RKT and then cover them?
Also, can I make while modeling chocolate and color it after it's set up? I need a small amount of several colors so I don't want to make full batches of colors with candy melts.
Thanks for any advice!
I just made my daughters Dora cake this past weekend and I used gumpaste for the decorations. I felt so bad when all the kids wanted to eat the decorations and they couldn't! I was just searching to see if modeling chocolate would have been a better choice and I came across your post. Maybe something to keep in mind when you are making your decision! Good luck!
Thanks for the input. Definitely something to consider.
Either modeling chocolate or RK treats would work fine. I tend to use RK treats for larger figures, or figures that need a lot of support.
You can make a large batch of white modeling chocolate and color small portions after. I recommend using gel or powder colors, not liquid. I used gel colors when I made my pieces for the ice fishing cake in my photos.
