K8memphis,

I like the idea of adding the flavoring. How much should I add? Do I add it and then make the consistency that I want?

Thank you

I also use fondant for hair.


I only used modelling chocolate once for a figure and I had a problem with arms breaking/crumbling when I tried to attach them to the body. I've seen some people mention that they mix fondant and modelling 50/50 for modelling figures. Does that work pretty well?
