So I'm sure most of you have already figured out this awesome product but this is the first time I've worked with it. I am working on my competition piece for the North Texas Cake show this weekend and I had planned to use modeling chocolate for a few things even though I have little experience with it.

I am IN LOVE. It's super easy to make, super easy to work with ...seriously...what took me so long. It is funny though, yestarday it was warmer and it was even easier ...today is only a bit cooler but you can tell the difference working with the stuff.

For those of you who don't know it is I used the Wilton Candy Clay recipe which is just candy melts and corn syrup. No one is eating it so I don't really care what it tastes like. I know some people use real chocolate which I may try for something people will eat.

almond bark also works well, and is a great cost effective substitute...I know HEB has a brand they carry called Plymouth Pantry its like 24 oz for 2 bucks and some change....cant beat that. it makes two batches for the price of one.
