ACan I use glucose syrup instead of corn syrup? We can't get corn syrup where I live so wondering if I can use glucose instead if so would the recipes be the same please help if you can.
Hi, I've only made modelling chocolate once before, but I used the same quantity of liquid glucose as was required of corn syrup, and it worked absolutely fine. I'm actually intending to do so again tomorrow for another cake, so I'll let you know how I get on, if you've not found out for yourself in the mean time.
AHow did you get on lizzieaylett?
Sorry, I got delayed. I intend to mix it first thing in the morning tomorrow (Scottish time) and then try colouring and modelling in the evening.
So, here is my modeling chocolate, all ready to be used!
I made it using Jessicakes' recipe, with Tesco Value white chocolate and liquid glucose. I coloured it after it had been mixed and rested. Be warned, it was very stiff at first - you will need strong arms - but it softened up quite quickly when kneaded.
I had a few tiny chunks of fat/wax in my dough, but they did knead out.
Hope you have fun with your modeling chocolate adventure!
