Will this work?

post #1 of 9

So I'm going to be making a 3D microphone for a cake. I got a chocolate candy mold and used dark chocolate candy melts (i couldn't find black). Now what I'm wanting to know is, I bought some of the Wilton Black Color Mist spray. Can I use this on the chocolate and does anyone know if it will dry? I'm going to be adding some fondant accents and I don't want fingerprints on it, lol..... If this wont work, does anyone have some suggestions?

If you have a leftover piece of chocolate, you might want to try it on that. My guess is it will bead up and not work....

You could make the mic out if fondant. Just spray your mold with cooking spray and press the fondant into the mold. That way you can make it what ever color you want. Just a thought and hope it helps.

Jeannem is right. (Hi Jeanne!) The spray will bead up on the chocolate.

I agree with VickeyC, you can make it out of fondant. However, I wouldn't spray the mold with anything. That will just increase the risk of fingerprints.

OR --- you can cover your chocolate mike with fondant. Use a little piping gel as glue. I do this when I need the firmness of chocolate, but the look of fondant. (See the ladybug in my pics for an example).

I don't have suggestions other than what others have said, but I did want to mention that the Wilton black spray doesn't really cover as solid black. It's transparent and actually has sort of a purple cast to it.

Okay thanks everyone, I think I'm going to try both using the fondant in the mold and since I already did the chocolate, I'll try covering it with fondant and see which I like better icon_smile.gif thanks a bunch!!

There is another thread regarding basically this same ? that I replied to last night.
Trying to remember back some 15-20 yrs ago - Francis Kuyper (*THE CakeLady*) used the airbrush to color white choco panels. As I remember she would spray them 1st with something like Baker's Joy, wipe them lightly w/a paper towel then airbursh.
Why dosen't someone try this out the report back to the masses. (I no longer have an airbrush or I would.)
