I have been playing with candy clay for a while and I have a question. Have any of you ever tried using it like fondant to cover a cake? I have a 3D car coming up and really don't like the taste of fondant. I also personally don't really like working with fondant, but it tends to be the nicest finish. Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

I've done it. On both layer cakes and on sculptures. Love the stuff. I got a first place for a modeling chocolate-covered sculpture at the OSSAS last month. I'd show it to you but the pics are on son's computer so I can't get to them. Bummer. You can see a monkey I covered in modeling chocolate in my photos.

Sometimes covering a cake in mod choc can be tricky without mixing in a little (or even half and half) fondant to give it more workability over large surfaces.

Thank you so much. I'm getting ready to do the cake and I'm still on the fence. I may just go ahead and use MMF. I will post a picture in this thread after the cake is done. Wish me luck lol. icon_smile.gif
