Mixing modeling chocolate with fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 27

homemade Modeling Chocolate roses, (milk choc clay, dark choc clay, white chocolate clay,)Swiss Meringue Buttercream

 

WickedGoodies: I successfully made Dark chocolate clay, Milk Chocolate Clay, & finally White Chocolate clay.  Made these roses, rosebuds, & leaves & then baked a cake just to put them on. I made balls of clay, pressed out the petals by hand and put them together, (don't have any cutters yet). I have yet to attempt the colored clay, but everyone I know simply hates fondant & loves chocolate so your book is a great guide for me.  Thanks again.

Oh wow! Great job! That looks professionally done. The frosting job, the piped border, and the flowers all look as good if not better than what you can find in bakeries. Bravo, MBalaska

Wicked Goodies,

 

I got your book in the mail a couple of days ago. I love it!

So I have a question in regards to a 50/50 mix. What do I use to color? Chocolate colors or fondant colors? I know they are different. I am making a cake for this weekend and have my mix which I am just cutting circles for a polka dot cake.

Will this 50/50 work for a standing #7 and if so would I need to stick a skewer in it to attach it to the cake or maybe make a long enough tail to stick in my straw?

Thanks!

Fondant colours will work fine.

 

I'd be nervous about using a 50/50 mix for standing numbers - you can add tylose to the mix to stiffen it, though. And if the weather is cool, it should hold up OK. I"ll let someone else give you a more definite answer, though.

@Smckinney07 Your problem was putting the modeling chocolate in the freezer to help it set up. Don't put it in the fridge or freezer. Just let it sit at cool room temperature for at least an hour, ideally overnight, if you want figures and decorations to set up. 

 

  • @forjenns no 50:50 will not work great for standing toppers. Better to use gumpaste or pure chocolate for that.

Lyndim: Finally gave it a try so I can say that I like it.  Thanks for your information above everyone.

I used the half half mix (both MC & F were homemade) for a big silicone mold of a mama & baby bear.

I am looking forward to covering a cake with the mix also.

I know this is an old post but hopefully someone who has used this mix will be so kind as to reply

 

When attaching the 50/50 mix to Ganache would you just mist the ganached cake with a little water? I was hoping to use a thin layer of Modeling Chocolate on a thin layer of Ganache but from what I can find the straight Modeling Chocolate won't adhere directly to the Ganache. If anyone has any answers for me it would be greatly appreciated.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .
