Can modelling chocolate support it's own weight? Does it need support?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm making a zombie torso and using modelling chocolate for the first time. I want it to stand up out of the cake. It's just the torso, head and arms and will be about 4 inches tall. Will it hold itself up? Should I support it internally with cocktail sticks? And can I add them once it has hardened up a bit?

 

Thanks

4" tall could be fine without sticks--kept it in a cool place--

 

if i added sticks i would do it sooner in the sculpting rather than later--

 

i'd probably use a stick for the head to torso though

Thanks K8memphis. I have used spaghetti to attach the head to the torso as I can't find my cocktail sticks! How do I store the finished pieces? Do they need to be in an airtight container? In the fridge or not?

i keep mine away from heat and light --not air tight --not in the fridge--just protected in a pan--where i won't smush it accidentally
