Wedding cake I made for a friends whose son was getting married. It was hot that day and we had to keep the cake inside as yes its sculpted chocolate.
Modeling Chocolate- 1lb. or 16 oz. chocolate (you can buy the little wafers)
2/3 C light Corn Syrup
If making white:
1 lb. or 16 oz. white chocolate
1/2 C. light corn syrup
In a double boiler (don't overheat chocolate) melt chocolate. Place corn syrup in the microwave just to make it warm (this prevents melted chocolate from seizing when you add it) add to chocolateand mix. I place it in freezer bag and place in refrigerator over night before working with it. You can freeze if you triple wrap it in plastic. and it will freeze indefinitely. I buy cake food coloring to add colors. Enjoy and let me know if you tried.
9 oz. Semisweet Chocolate
1 T Light Corn Syrup
Put cream over medium heat until it just starts to simmer. Remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir well and add corn syrup. Slightly cool and pour over cake.
If you want to make it in a ganache filling instead Beat with a mixer for 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Enjoy!
