AI'm going to be making a veggie tray cake for a beach party. I was contemplating using modeling chocolate for my veggies, but since I don't know what the weather will be, heat wise, I'm questioning my plan. Is there a way to firm up modeling chocolate to withstand the heat better? Can you mix modeling chocolate with gumpaste and would that be an option? Or, should I stick with fondant veggies, or even gumpaste for that matter?
I need some advice/ feedback please!!
Thanks in advance!
marzipan would work pretty good i think
You can mix it with gumpaste or fondant and those will both help stabilize it but not make it as yummy. I find modeling chocolate to be great for sculpting fruit and veggies and have made strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes, lettuce, corn on the cob, out of it. Good luck!
ANever thought of marzipan! I'd prefer just the modeling chocolate, but I'm afraid of it melting.
I tried marzipan last night and was not leased with the taste at all....
modeling chocolate will melt at the beach in typical summer weather
