Intro to Modeling Chocolate
Lauren Kitchens teaches you to concoct, color, texture and transform modeling chocolate, taking it to new heights and bringing it into your kitchen.

Add modeling chocolate to your cake decorating bag of tricks! In Intro to Modeling Chocolate: Cityscape Cakes, cake artist Lauren Kitchens shows you how to create textured, colorful cake embellishments from this easy and versatile medium. Lauren takes the city of Chicago as her inspiration, crafting Windy City landmarks from the Sears Tower to Lake Michigan. You'll learn how to add color and textural accents and assemble a spectacular cake that reflects the city you call home — or any favorite place! Lauren also shares with you step-by-step instructions for assembling and transporting your cake.

"I've read books, tutorials, and watched lots of videos on how to prepare and work with modeling chocolate. None come close to Laurenís method of teaching! I have attempted modeling chocolate several times only to fail miserably. After taking Lauren's course, not only was I able to make a successful batch, I also was able to create some pretty cool figures."
