Which one is better to use for Chevrons on a cake? Fondant or modeling chocolate? I am planning on using the Jessicakes method...
i would use modeling choco
but say you want a pure white or something
use the fondant but chill it before handling so it doesn't stretch on you
and/or cut them out of thick fondant
and i would set a timer so i did not leave them in the chillbox too long
justa coupla minutes should be fine
you don't want to lose all elasticity so i would recommend using a timer
edited to say--oh but i do not know the jessicakes method so...???
This is the jessicakes method: http://jessicakesblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/chevron-inspired-safari-themed-baby.html
It's a pretty great idea.
Also, with modeling chocolate I need to use the oil food colors, right?
yes oil or powder color for chococlay
and i would not put this in the frige at all!!!
You can use normal paste colours for modelling choc!
