Yo's Modelling Chocolate
Featured in The How To Cake It: CakeBook
Modeling chocolate is one of the most versatile tools in my caking toolkit. You can dye it, sculpt fine details with it, mold it, run it through a pasta machine, even grate it if you’re in need of some modeling chocolate “cheese.” The only trick to this recipe is that you need to be sure to make the chocolate in advance—it needs to sit for a day before you can work with it. Don’t be fooled and think that you can substitute white chocolate chips for compound chocolate—you won’t get the same smooth, workable consistency.
* TIP: You can also make dark modeling chocolate. Just substitute dark compound chocolate for the white, and use either light or regular corn syrup. *
