Q&A with Bobert

Lauren Kitchens asked:
You got the petals super thin. Tremendous!
Bobert answered:
Yes but the chocolate modeling project was not as succesful in the floral.
the4delos1021069 asked:
Can you tell me what modeling chocolate is, & how you painted the bottom of this beautiful cake??
Bobert answered:
From the best I can describe this to you at this point in my limited sugar craft experience, modeling chocolate is an edible clay-like, malleable sugar dough that can be easily worked into various shpaes and designs. Often used to make little figurines adorning cakes. The bottom of this cake was air-brushed with a green food coloring then scraped as one would using scratch board techniques to create the grassy field look then piped colored chocolate was used to create the flowers. I used the star tool to 'punch' a hole on some of the flowers to help create a 'petal' look.
