Hi everyone!
I was wondering if someone could help me out. I Have my son's Holy Communion coming up this weekend, but I wanted to incorporate a chalice on his cake. My question is...how to make one using RKT? Then cover it in fondant? I don't have gum-paste on hand, and can't get out to get some.
Thanks,
Would love to learn and quickly! icon_smile.gif

Do you have modeling chocolate or gumtex/tylose on hand?

You can make a chalice with modeling chocolate or mix the gumtex or tylose with your fondant (turns the fondant into gumpaste quickly). If you make it out of gumpaste/fondant, be sure to give it 1-2 days for it to dry hard.

Here's a Chalice I made: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1663624

I also have a tutorial on my blog: http://sugarsweetcakesandtreats.blogspot.com/2010/05/1st-communion-cake-with-rosary-and.html

Thank you so much Angela for your response. I actually just printed out a tutorial on how to make modeling chocolate lol. So that I can '"try". How long does modeling chocolate take to dry and how far in advance could I make the modeling chocolate?

I usually like to make my modeling chocolate the night before and let it rest overnight at room temperature (I have a tutorial with set by step photos on my blog too). If in a rush, you can make it and put it in the fridge for a half hour or so to cool and set and use it right away.

Modeling chocolate stores for months like fondant. Keep it wrapped up really well and sealed in an airtight container.

Good luck!

Thank you so much for all your ideas. How do you find a tutorial when you need it? I've tried before but with no success.
