I am new to using modeling chocolate and have been reading great things about it. I'm tired of making fondant figurines and toppers so far in advance. I need to make a boy fisherman for a cake topper and am wondering do I put it together all at the same time and is a toothpick needed to attach the head or do I just attach it with sugar glue? And if I keep it out overnight will it be hardened by the next day?
Modeling chocolate if pretty firm all by itself, so you can do as much at one time as you choose. It would be your choice whether to use a toothpick to attach the head since modeling chocolate allows you to blend it in seamlessly. I don't usually make small cake toppers, but I always use an armature inside my modeling chocolate figures. If they are small and squatty, they probably would not need it.
Thanks so much!!
