Modeling Chocolate Planets

Modeling Chocolate is now my preferred decoration for cakes!  A few weeks ago, I made a cake for my daughter with molded lipstick, compact mirror, and a hairbrush.  Now, for my son, I’ve made a space-themed cake and cupcakes decorated with modeling chocolate.  I love the look of the planets!

The sun is made out of a 6″ round cake, the planets are made of modeling chocolate, and the moons are candy pearls.  The asteroid belt is turbinado sugar.

Modeling Chocolate is simply a combination of chocolate and corn syrup-so easy to make.

Adding color to the white modeling chocolate, then pulling and folding it a few times, really made these look realistic.

What fun shapes have you created with modeling chocolate?
