Chocolate icing

PICT0717

Some call it chocolate plastic.  It’s basically just like white ready-to-roll fondant (sugarpaste/ plastic icing) – only thing it taste like chocolate (yummy !) and looks brown like a bar of chocolate.  I have heard about it for a long time but just couldn’t find it sold anywhere.  I was glad to found it at Cake Connection during my last visit. Bought a pack even though I have no future plan on how to use it.  Anyway, yesterday we were invited to a neighbour’s wedding, so I quickly made a batch of cupcakes.  Took out the chocolate fondant and start decorating the cupcakes.

Like most ready-made fondant, I find the texture of the chocolate fondant too soft.  I’m not sure, is it due to our hot weather ? I have to knead in some cocoa powder into the chocolate fondant to make it slightly stiffer.  In its original texture, it is too soft to make chocolate roses. The petals will droop. But after adding a little bit of cocoa powder, it was ok. Only thing working with cocoa powder was a bit messy, I had to be careful not to stain the cupcakes.  But the taste of the chocolate icing is suprisingly good.. I can nibble on them just like real chocolate.  Forgot to mention the price, it was around RM18+ if I’m not mistaken.  Imagine wrapping a whole cake with this chocolate icing,  we will never peel away the fondant before eating the cake..  And if you are making a black cake, then using the chocolate fondant will save time on trying to get the black colour (since it is already dark brown).

So go grab a packet and start wrapping and moulding :) .

wiz says:

Hi there Min, lama tak sembang.

There’s another brand that sells the chocolate fondant ni. It is in gold plastic wrapper, I can’t remember its name. But I have tried it and it is not too soft like the bakel one tu. Kat Sugarflours ada jual. But you really need to knead it for awhile. And it covers the cake nicely.
