Thanks Calli for posting. I have to say, and this may seem strange, when I’ve used inexpensive chocolate, my modeling chocolate turns out great. Used as you say, grocery store chocolate, no name brand bagged chocolate chips, etc. I think because the better types of chocolate have more oil. Going to save this…..

Thanks so much for feedback. awww so kind <3 xx

June, I totally agree with supermarket chocolate, its all that I use… but I had run out when I made this tute and someone had given the candy melts to me… it still worked out fine… and thanks for the tip that expensive choc brands contain more fat, I didn’t know that :)

Thanks for the tutorial

Thank you… have saved to have a go… and some fun… luckily I don’t like white choc so there will be no nibbling….

Many many thanks for your postive feedback and for those who have not yet tried modelling choclate, well I’m so sure you are going to love this additional medium to work with,

my sugar fairy cakes hahaha…. Yes, I’m a dark chocolate person… Oh and you can do this with dark chocolate too…

Ellie@Ellie’s Elegant Cakery it sets hard but not like sugarpaste… Sugarpaste snaps because it’s brittle and dry as all moisture has dried out of it… Modelling choclate is not brittle, as its chocolate with ingredients such as the glucose, glycerine, butter, so, it sets as hard a slab of chocolate, maybe a bit harder… But it’s pretty solid, that’s for sure. And it can be smoothed over if cracks etc appear.

Thanks so much everyone and so pleased you’re all going to give it a go x

Thanks Calli, this is perfect timing as I`ve been searching everywhere today trying to find corn syrup! Liquid glucose is much easier to find! I`ve never used modelling chocolate and can`t wait to try it.If I wanted to colour it, is it better to colour it when the candy melts/choc have melted or knead it in at the end? And if you mix it with fondant, can you still blend it together for that seamless look? Hope you don`t mind me asking x

-- Julie Cains Cakes

Wonderful tutorial, Calli!!!! ♥
I just bought some modeling chocolate to try it. The next time I will use your tutorial! Xx

Yuo’re so talented Calli, thank you so much for this tutorial! :)

-- Clara

Thanks so much for this Calli I have always wanted to make some. I don’t have a microwave do you think it would work OK to melt the chocolate over a stove in a bain marie? Also where do you get the large tubes of glucose from we only have little bottles in our Tescos? Thanks Lizzie :)

THANKYOU! I am going to give this a go xxx

-- Sassy Cakes and Cupcakes

Cali, can you airbrush it with normal airbrush colours! Never airbrushed modelling chocolate, I normally colour it before modelling, but a piece I will be working on would be great if I could airbrush x

-- Alana Lily Chocolates & Cakes

Thanks for sharing Calli. If you were going to colour this modelling choc, would you do it at the beginning with the melted choc, or at the kneading in stage? x
