I'm planning to make some strawberry cupcakes and would love to do a "margarita" style decoration. Instead of using real fruit, I'd love to make a strawberry and a lime wedge out of white chocolate and see if it's possible to flavor them accordingly without having the chocolate seize up.
I suppose I could do the strawberry and lime in marzipan but I prefer white modeling chocolate and have gotten quite good at using it and would like to continue to do so.
Has anyone flavored their white modeling chocolate?
yes i often use vanilla powder in my w choco in fact just yesterday i did this -- but for lime and strawberry flavors i'd recommend using oil maybe an essential oil but like a lorann oil based product -- and mere drops are used -- it doesn't take much at all -- sounds delicious, dramatic and fun
best to you
Of course! What an obvious solution! Thank you much! I'll post up photos later this week. The theme is a Mexican Fiesta so I'll be doing cactus, pinatas, and margaritas!
K8Memphis - the essential oils worked and my strawberries had a nice strawberry flavor as well as the limes.
Thank you again for the suggestion![postimage id="2695" thumb="900"]
