covering cake with modeled chocolate - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I am wondering the same thing. How long does it last for? I have mine in the fridge right now. And are you able to cut out patterns before hand? I have a huge baby cake to do for a baby shower and would like to get ahead start. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated icon_smile.gif

This site contains tips and tricks for working with modeling chocolate and candy melts.

I made modeling chocolate once and ended up with an oily mess, I used her tip to continue kneading the oil back in with corn syrup and my chocolate was saved.

Also look at www.wickedgoodies.net for pics and a lot of info on candy clay.

 

Once it is on the cake, it will last as long as the cake does. By itself, no need for the fridge.

 

If you want to cut out shapes ahead of time, lay them on sheets of baking parchment and stack them up. Put them into a bag to prevent drying out.

 

Use CANDY colors if you have to colour this stuff--oil based--or paste.  Better to buy precoloured candy melts if you need dark colours.

This cake was a 7 inch red velvet filled and crumb coated with white chocolate/sour cream ganache (2 lbs white chocolate melted combined with a 1 lb container of full fat sour cream) and covered with black candy clay (14 oz Wilton black candy melts melted combined with 1/3 cup of white corn syrup).  The birthday boy was given the cake on a Friday and didn't cut it till Sunday.  He said it was perfect.  He followed instructions and kept the cut area covered with plastic wrap and said the final piece was as good as the first when he had it on Wednesday.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.
