Which one is better to use for Chevrons on a cake?  Fondant or modeling chocolate?  I am planning on using the Jessicakes method...

 

Thanks!!!

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?

 

Thanks!!

You can use normal paste colours for modelling choc!
