Q&A with Bobert

the4delos1021069 asked:
Bobert - I'm fairly new to cake decorating & I've never used modeling clay. Is that any different than fondant?? This cake is gorgeous, especially the leaves. Did you use a cutter for them leaves??
Bobert answered:
Thank you. I still consider myself new at this sugar craft too but from what I've experienced modeling chocolate is very similar with working in clay, moulding and shaping are easier. Modeling chocolate does not dry out as quickly as fondant which can be good and not so good if one wants to perform a design and expects modeling chocolate to firmup as gumpaste does. Modeling chocolate has its place just as fondant and gum paste does. Concerning the leaves, I did have a cutter for them, a daisy leaf cutter but the veining was done done with a round tooth pick.
corteofs asked:
Is the cake all covered in modeling chocolate or is this ganache ?
Bobert answered:
The cake itself is covered in ganache. The floral work is modeling chocolate.
