I have scoured the internet and just can't find anything on this light blue can of some sort of edible spray that Buddy (Cake Boss) is using on his finished modeling chocoalte roses.

Does anyone know what this is exactly and what the benefits of it's use are?

Thanks so much!

I don't know the blue can, but it's probably some variation of this stuff.

Are you talking about freeze spray?

Pretty sure it was freeze spray. It's pricey & a waste of money. The flowers will set up by themselves once you stop touching them, as long as they're put in a cool place.

For flowers, perhaps. But it is not a waste of money if you are building a showpiece or doing other complex chocolate things. I could not build a showpiece without freeze spray.

Never said it didn't have it's place.

I, too, use it for chocolate & sugar show pieces, to set pieces in place, etc., but I'd never waste it on firming up a few petals for something that can be set aside & allowed to firm up on its own.

It's a mighty pricey item to even just "have on hand" if it's not something that you're going to use regularly and wasteful to use on something that doesn't require it.
