Yesterday I showed you the Mountain Dew Cupcakes I made for the party, today is what went on top of the cupcakes. I've become a huge fan of modeling chocolate, so easy to work with and it holds up to the temperatures we've been having lately. And who doesn't LOVE some chocolate and shaped into something amazing!
I just kind of eyeballed this and ran with it!
What you need:
Modeling Chocolate (Green, Red, Orange, Purple and Blue) - see recipe below
Circle cookie cutter
Square cookie cutter
Roll out your green modeling chocolate, I like mine to be on the thick side. I then cut out circle's for the face's (I made 24 total). I set these aside on some parchment paper and got to work on the mask. I made all 4 characters so I needed 6 mask total. I rolled out each color then I took a square cookie cutter. I cut each square in half and then using my fingers shaped them into mask. Each one was a little different do to this but I loved they had character. I then took 2 Wilton Candy Eyeballs and added to the mask (use a little water as glue). I then dabbed a little water to the back of mask and attached to the green circle. I had previous bought a TMNT cutter (that I wasn't impressed with) but I liked the mouth piece. NOW you can do this with a tooth pick also.
I let them sit out a while to harden up then attach to the top of my cupcakes! And your done!
For those who haven't seen my post about 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).
Thanks for Stopping by!
