Topic: Fondant and Modeling Chocolate question
kreuter90 07/15/2010 8:27 AM
I am making my son's first birthday cake. I plan on covering the cake in fondant and then adding more fondant for detail. When applying the detail, do I use water as my glue or something else?

Also when working with modeling chocolate, how do I clue those pieces together, the same way?

Last do I store both? How long in advance can I cover the cake or make the monkey.

This is what I'm going to attempt....wish me luck.

Cute design! Attach your fondant decorations with water on a small brush. The modeling chocolate is not something I use. I only make molded chocolates. But I would imagine you could attach modeling chocolate to fondant with a little melted chocolate. I dont refrigerate my fondant cakes. They keep well covered at room temp for a couple days. The fondant seals in freshness.
