Hi everyone! I have worked with Modelling Chocolate (referred to as M/C throughout this article) many times over the past few months, trying to find the perfect recipe, and the best ways to use it.

It has adde...

This year i have decided to do it as a business and have been getting everything i need ready. One of the things i have been looking into lately is copyright. Do you even realise that you need permission to re-create well known characters into icing to put ont...
A common situation in most overseas airports used to be Indians on their toes, shopping at the duty free stores and filling all the space that remained in their over-packed bags with chocolates for all their numerous friends and relatives back home.Like every other Indian girl, the arrival of those typical “Trolley Cases”(a birthmark of an overseas voyage) used to make me prance around for weeks together.

I had a lady call me and ask me for a quote on a 3 tiered cake for a graduation as well as a quote for 20 cake pops. I told her the cost for the cake would be $120 and I would need to see the picture of her idea and the price would go up depending on the amount of detail. She almost had a heart attack an...
