I am working on a cake for a bridal shower on Sunday. My plan was to use fondant in these cute little wedding candy molds I found. The problem is that the fondant is sticking in the molds and not holding the pattern on them. I don't have gumpaste to add to the fondant, either.
My plan B was to use white chocolate in the molds to add to the cake as decorations.
First of all - can you use any Lorann oils in the candy or is it only certain ones? The only clear ones I have are cotton candy, marshmallow or cheesecake - which would go best with a white and chocolate cake?
Secondly, since the buttercream is going to be white, I wanted to add a bit of . . . something to the chocolate to make it stand out more. I thought I had pearl luster dust, but I only have silver. I also have edible glitter. Can you mix either of these into the chocolate before molding? In my mind, I see either swirls of the silver dust or little sparkly pieces of the glitter throughout each piece. Would that work?
Regarding the flavoring I would use Cheesecake, that sounds pretty good.
I have used Lorann oil in white chocolate and it worked fine.
I have not mixed the luster dust into the candy, I would be worried that it might cause it to sieze. However, I have waited for the candy to set, and painted it on with a dry brush and it worked great.
Hope this helps.
