I love love love making 3 dimensional structured cakes! It was all made with modeling chocolate...the best thing since sliced bread! So forgiving, so workable! Doesn't crack, or dry our like fondant. And it tastes so good! I would never use fondant ever again! Interested in making your own modeling chocolate? Follow this recipe:
1 lbs white compound chocolate
1/3 cup white corn syrup
Melt the chocolate in microwave. Be sure to melt in a low setting or you will risk burning your chocolate.
Warm up the corn syrup slightly and pour onto melted chocolate.
Be sure to stir quickly as it will firm up quickly, making sure that all the chocolate is stirred in properly.
Wrap in plastic and let cool down.
Knead and work away!
