Rock Star Cupcakes ... Microphones and Star (Modeling Chocolate)

The last 3 weeks I have been so sick ... yuck.  But of course I had previously signed up for cupcakes for the charity I work for Birthday Dreams (bringing birthday parties to homeless kids). So my cupcakes were not as beautiful as I usually would do, medicine head really can put you in a fog.  I signed up for a rock star themed cake, I had an idea to do mini microphones using mini cupcake cones. WELL during the winter finding those is IMPOSSIBLE! So I switched to making my own with Modeling Chocolate.


These were pretty easy to make and I added a few stars and done!

What you need:
White Modeling Chocolate 
Yellow  Modeling Chocolate
Wilton Licorice String
Edible Silver Dust
Frosted Cupcakes

For those who have not seen my previous post on how to make modeling chocolate (aka candy clay).

Modeling Chocolate
12oz Candy Melts
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup

Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup.  It will become thick and form a ball.  Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry.  Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).



For Microphones I made the white hand part out of white modeling chocolate and then dusted with edible silver dust.  I'm thinking next time a tootsie roll dusted would be easier ... lol. I took yellow modeling chocolate and made the balls for the top of the microphone. For the wire I used Wilton licorice string.  For the stars I used a cookie cutter and yellow modeling chocolate.



Have a great week!
