Modeling Chcolate in Silicone Molds ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a cake and cupcakes coming up and the customer doesn't like fondant on any of the cake/cupcakes. I thought instead I would use modeling chocolate because she loves chocolate. In using the silicone molds with fondant/gumpaste you use cornstarch. is it the same when using modeling chocolate or can you use that in the molds? thanks ! icon_biggrin.gif

Yes - keep the modeling chocolate AND the molds dusted with corn starch. That should eliminate sticking.

Only the slightest bit of cornstarch, add your modelling chocolate, freeze for 5 minutes and it'll pop straight out. Why not go one step further and do pure chocolate or candy melts? I find it easier than modelling chocolate.

That's what I do. It goes incredibly fast. After I pipe in the candy melts, I put the mold in the freezer for just a minute and they pop right out. I don't use cornstarch or anything.

I am making a fish tank cake for my neices BD & I did not want to use fondant for the fish & coral etc, I thought of using just the melts but wonder if modeling chocolate would not be more pliable & easier to cut so the decos do not have to be removed from the cake before cutting? TIA
