Thanks for the info!
Can you give us more information on how to make one yourself, please?
Thanks for the clarification, icer101. I was so enamored by the taste/texture I didn't think about the stability issue for things other than cupcakes. For the record, here is what Jen says in the recipe post:"Finished CCSMBC is softer then regular but is great for topping cupcakes or using as a filling (damed with regular SMBC I do not put it on the outside of cakes or under fondant (except as a filling) because of the softness, I worry about my layers shifting."
You might want to try FromScratchSF's Cream Cheese Swiss Meringue Buttercream found here: made it for the first time this past weekend (also my first time making any type of Meringue Buttercream). My first thought upon tasting it was, "This is like eating ice cream" (except it's not cold!).

As for developing your own recipes, that is a lofty goal which you might be ready for after a lot of experience, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with using another's recipe (even a...

Actually you'd want to INCREASE the fat content to get less crusting in your BC.

Does the above warning against summer use apply only to a 50/50 mix or also to straight modeling chocolate? Would it be a mistake to use modeling chocolate to make some small sculpted (free standing) tree trunks in moderate heat/humidity? TIA.
