Modeling Chocolate Magic

with Lauren Kitchens
Where fondant fails, modeling chocolate is magic! Use modeling chocolate to create three of Lauren's imaginative cakes and bring your decorating dreams to life.

Join award-winning cake decorator Lauren Kitchens, and find out how to use modeling chocolate to easily create elaborate designs that would be unmanageable or even impossible to make from fondant. As Lauren guides you through the two-tiered Sea Creature cake, you'll quickly sculpt amazing modeling chocolate embellishments, such as octopus tentacles, that would be a fondant nightmare! See how modeling chocolate makes it simple to extend your designs in gravity-defying ways while you create the enchanting Wizard's Hat cake. Plus, use modeling chocolate to produce the illusion of depth as you make the lifelike Vintage Luggage cake with an enclosure filled with colorful modeling chocolate clothing. Turn your inspiration into marvelous cake creations with modeling chocolate!
