Chocolate Elegance

Boy oh Boy was this a challenge. This cake is based on an amazing design by Mitch Turner from the Little Venice cake Company and to be honest i cringed a little when i saw this was what Madelaine and John wanted lol.

How on Earth was i going to pull that off and then my determination set in haha and there was no way i wasnt going to give it ago.

The main problem i had with the cake was the modelling chocolate, I had never made it before let alone even attempting chocolate roses!!! It’s only two ingredients right?, How hard could it be? Agggghhhhhhhghhh darn that modelling chocolate haha. I realised then maybe i was watching lauren Kitchens youtube video “How NOT to make modelling chocolate” half asleep and thought it was “How to make it” bahahaha. Well anyway to cut to the chase i threw out (I mean ate lol) a lot of failed modelling chocolate and then Halleluleah i got the perfect modelling chocolate. It was totally PERFECT it had elasticity, it was smooth, shiny and just brilliant. My white chocolate wasnt as perfect but it was smooth and i still managed with it.

I was soooooo happy with how my roses turned out and literally had them arranged on that cake within 30mins. i was stressing about how to arrange them but it was simple. Once the modelling choc dryed out slightly and became harder i inserted a toothpick into the back of each bud, dip the end in a tiny bit of tempered chocolate and stuck them straight into the cake. The cake looked spectacular and those roses tasted great hehe. I toally ate one of the leftovers lol, Thanks for looking x Tina

Tina ...

wow thank you so much for your amazing comments.

Toni and 3dsweets. ill have another go at the recipe and if it works out as well ill post it ok :-). I found modelling chocolate to be very temperamental and would hate to post a recipe that failed for you.

Elegant and delicious

OK, thanks Tina. I hope your recipe works well for you when you try it again. It would be great to have a fool proof modeling chocolate recipe, but then again you said that it is temperamental so that might not be the case. Let us know how it works out!
