  1. Best pool cake ever. The pool looks so real… like the kids were really “inside” … so cool!!!

  2. Thanks Berny!

  3. Great cake….wonderful job, great detail with the boys out of modeling chocolate. I play around with making cakes for the grandbabies and have tried a few recipes for modeling chocolate and can’t get the detail that you do….it seems to crumble or get grainy. Can you give me any pointers or how you make yours? Thanks much,

  4. Patti,
    Thank you for the comments! I use either the Wilton candy melts or the Merkens chocolate coating. I find that if you use straight chocolate, that you have to add a touch more corn syrup. I also knead it all REALLY well before I use it and then break off whatever I need to use from the kneaded. Also make sure that your chocolate doesn’t encounter ANY water and don’t overheat your chocolate…that makes it grainy. Hope that helps!
