Again thank you all for your tips!
JGifford, Yes I think that that was the problem, I put too much corn syrup in it (I put the quantity asked for in the recipe but I think it depends on the ratio of cocoa butter contained in the chocolate) . It was fine at first but after it had cooled a bit and I kneaded it a bit it became very oily I melted a bit more chocolate to add and I left it to rest for almost a whole day but every time I tried to work whith it, the model elephant I made was drooping (?) and wouldn't hold in place... I finally ended up mixing a bit of fondant to it and cmc and left it to rest again whole day. If i worked with it too much (like to model the head of the elephant, I had to try it two or three times to get a figure I liked) it still wouldn't hold ... Like you said next time I think I will add less corn syrup.
And thank you for my english...
It is hard sometimes to find the right words, so I change my phrase and make it much simpler and I'm sometimes "ashamed" I'm trying to improve it and my spelling...
rr2sweet, I used white chocolate and checked it out first to see that it wasn't written that it could contain traces of milk... Here it's not that easy to find a box of cake mix (I would love to try the wasc recipe I see CCers using.. ) The can of soda (any sort?) you use is it in replacement of the oil you have to add, or do you add all the ingredients asked for plus the soda?
tbkimber, maybe it could act like a shield against the warmth of my hand... I'll give it a go as well.. Like you said, must have not been a pretty sight to take all that sugar out of the gloves but at least now she'll never forget it again
traci_doodle, thanks for that info on margerine, I thought so as well that it had something dairy to it but wasn't sure, but that is why I hadn't bought it
