need to make a bunch of leaves to top cupcakes. i wanted to try something other than fondant/gumpaste as this is for kids and i thought they might not eat them. i experimented with modeling chocolate for the first time--tasted good but i wasn't crazy about how they looked. couldn't get a good "leafy green color' and they didn't dry to hold their shape like fondant/gumpaste does. wondered if any of you have experience with modeling chocolate. is this a common problem...
need to do a cake for a homecoming dinner working with the theme "all roads lead to rome". am thinking of doing a roman laurel wreath out of cupcakes. any suggestions on how to get those leaves really looking like laurel leaves? i thought the kids might like chocolate leaves, but may be hard to get the look i want. if i go to gumpaste/fondant what particular leaf mold would you use? thanks so much
