Nope, it's made from just regular poured and piped chocolate.
There are gumpaste shoes just like this, no cake in the picture that are allowed. It's all edible, it's all decorated, it all goes to the same kind of business and art form.
If I make a rose from gumpaste and a rose from chocolate I can post the gumpaste one with no cake but I can't post the chocolate one unless I make a cake just to set it on. That's what I learned about the photos from reading the forums.
Maybe they will include a chocolate section sometime in the future and we can all start posting those photos.
I'm sure there was a point that pulled sugar didn't have a gallery. I'll just wait for a cake order or the chocolate gallery. I'd be really excited to see some of these amazing cake artists chocolate work!
