I was (and still am) not very fond of fondant so I was trying to find a good alternative to it and I was so happy to have found a detailed step-by-step tutorial on how to make chocolate modeling clay from Baking Obsession (thank you!).

  • Put chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and set the bowl of chocolate in the hot water.
  • Stir constantly until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Off the heat, add the corn syrup and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Transfer the chocolate mixture onto a piece of plastic wrap and pat it into a thin disk, about 6 mm thick.
  • Fold the plastic wrap over the chocolate and refrigerate for at least a couple of hours or up to several weeks (check the expiration date on your chocolate).
  • Take the chocolate plastic out of the refrigerator.
  • Leave it on a counter for 30 minutes to soften slightly.
  • Knead the plastic with your hands to make it smooth and pliable.
  • Use it to make roses or roll it to a certain thickness and cut different fun shapes with it to decorate cakes and cupcakes.
