This is probably a really stupid question but on the most recent Cupcake Wars, the winning baker made candy decorations in the shape of a rocket ship, and they were adorable. He laid a stencil/mold on the counter, brushed a substance on it, and it became a stiff thin rocket. Someone told me it was liquid fondant, but I don't think that was accurate. Any ideas? I'm a cupcake person, frostings, fondant, that fun stuff, but this was new to me.

I didn't see that episode but I'm interested to find out what it is too.

Is it possible it was modeling chocolate? Poured fondant wouldn't get hard enough, so it likely wasn't that.

I saw that. I thought it was white chocolate? It would fill the stencil well & it would set quickly on that metal table. Either that or royal icing?

I agree about it being white chocolate.
