equivelent to caandy melts in the UK HELP PLEASE ........ - Page 3

post #31 of 38
Hi, im not sure if this is what your looking for but i make models and figures out of chocolate. I just buy cadburys from the cash and carry (because i like the taste) i melt it in the microwave and add golden syrup to it which instantly makes it into 'clay'. I love it. If you use white chocolate you can colour it or i have painted milk chocolate by mixing food colouring with vodka or you can airbrush it and it drys much quicker. I made a standing horse with this and i think it worked really well.
Wilton candy melts are also available at hobbycraft for i think under £2. Hope this helps!

When I used to make cake pops (life is now too short - :grin:). I used Sainsbury's Basics white chocolate which was 30p for 100g. You might have to hunt for it, they tend to put it on the bottom shelf of the chocolate section. I just melted it and added either cocol (chocolate) colours or powder colours. Didn't need to temper it, just melted it in a bain marie, stirred in the colour and dipped. The consistency was perfect, it set quickly and there was no need to add any extra oil (which people often say you have to do with candy melts).

Hey, I've been looking to make cake pops and you need candy melts also. I didn't think any supermarkets would sell them so I looked in Hobbycraft and you can buy them there for just £3!!!:D:cake:

Hobby craft definitely do Wilton Candy Melts, and a bunch of large suppliers of cake craft stuff across the UK do it so an internet search would probably yield a cheaper supplier than Hobby craft.

Personally I think they taste like nasty cheap white chocolate flavoured coating though.
