Okay recently I saw a Food Network Challenge of wedding cakes... It was great... I love watching these shows... But while I was watching Mike something or other from Washington... So he used a white chocolate frosting that was rolled like fondant and think... I hate fondant all together and thought this would be a good alternative...
Can anyone give me an idea of what this was...
Just wanted to keep this up... I would love to hear about this too!
Coette Peter's uses a rolled fondant called Massa Grischuna. It comes in "neutral", white chocolate, & dark chocolate. She gets it from Albert Uster (auiswisscatalogue.com).
I've tasted the white chocolate when I attended demonstration classes with her. It has a wonderful texture and it tastes great without adding anything. With shipping, it's pretty pricey--$4+/lb. I've posted the description from the Uster website below.
Confiseur dOr White Chocolate Massa Grischuna (rolled fondant) - 13.2 lbs / 6 kg
This massa grischuna (rolled fondant) offers a white chocolate flavor and ivory color tone for the perfect all-chocolate wedding cake. Use it to enrobe and decorate white chocolate cakes, sponges filled with ganache or to wrap white chocolate mousse petit fours
I think it was a chocolate and corn syrup mixture, sort of like cany clay. I can't remember what it's called, but I know it's been talked about on here before.
I'd be interested to know what it is, too.
I was also under the impression that it was more like candy clay than fondant. Not sure, though. If you went to his website www.mikesamazingcakes.com
and emailed, maybe they would even tell you what it was!
Blake-I'm paying $8.50 for 2# of Satin Ice when I don't use MMF, so that price isn't really that bad, especially when you consider that yucky Wilton stuff is $7.99/2# here.
I think it is called chocolate plastic. Toba Garrett has it in her book. You can make it with dark, milk or white chocolate....you mix it with corn syrup and I'm not sure what else cuz I dont have the book in front of me...if you want the recipe let me know and I will get it for you!!
I want to try this ..also I am ordering some from the uster site.
Okay Chocolate Plastic... THis is the stuff I believe he used... I will test and let you all know how it goes...
