Modeling Chocolate Succulants
|Hen and Chick and other Succulents|
I've really been interested in succulents for sometime. I'm not one to be as nurturing with plants as with people. I'm willing to learn though. I found some really interesting ways decorators have created them in cake form.
Rachel of Kawaii Sweet world always has the cutest ways to bake and decorate. Below is her video for Cacti cupcakes...I love the flowery accents.
With chocolate modeling clay once it's softened by your hand kneading. The petals need a sit down to cool. If need be just no more than 1-2 minutes in the refrigerator.
Tools: Ball tools and the bench scrapper or spatulas...

You'll also want to have a
cutting board/silpat and a bit of cornstarch.
I found an easy to follow tutorial on Pixel Whisk
by Seton Rosinni posts Gumpaste Succulants that look very realistic.
I hope you try your hand at succulants in candy form or any form..a lot of fun.
Happy Chocolate Monday
