I'm want to use the royal icing tiara instruction from here, but use melting chocolates instead, since I think it will taste better. The instructions say to go over the pattern 3 times, allowing it to dry in between each time. Do you need to do that when working w/ chocolate?

Can you color chocolate w/ Wilton icing colors?

Since modeling chocolate would be rolled or extruded you'd only do it once.

You can color white modeling chocolate w/ Wilton colors because modeling chocolate is already seized when you add the corn syrup to it.

Hi just a suggestion...I used wilton melting chocolate for a clam mold and with the heat and humidity, once I delivered the cake, the chocolate had gotten so soft it fell apart! icon_cry.gif I would use the royal icing method myself. icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

Good to know! I was planning to use the Wilton chocolates. It is for us, so does not need to be delivered. I'll make sure and test it out ahead of time.
