My Little Kai turned two in February and he LOVES monkeys. So I decided to make him a monkey cake. The cake barely survived until it was time for the party. When I turned my back he attacked the cake and stole the 3rd monkey and ate it! So, this is the patched cake after he attacked it. Can you blame him? Everything on the cake was made by hand with fondant.
Here is my cute Kai.
How to Make and Work with Modeling Chocolate
Modeling Chocolate is really easy to make and it is really easy to work with.
16 oz chocolate melts
1/2 cup corn syrup
Add 1/2 cup corn syrup
Stir together, I poured it out onto wax paper
you will end up with something that looks like this:
I know, it looks a little gross
but it is like a big tootsie roll
Once it is done cooling wrap in saran wrap until ready to use.
Then you can work your magic. I used this modeling chocolate to make a tree for a Halloween cake:
Step 1: Made a base our of wire and floral tape
started putting the modelling chocolate on
Kept adding modeling chocolate until it looked right, shaped it and shaded it.
See, it is really simple to make and work with! Have fun creating new things with modeling chocolate!
