I find that you go to lots of trouble to decorate a cake, and a lot of the time people just leave the icing on the plate. This Is a great way of getting a smooth finish and just tastes like chocolate.


  • 1 lb White Chocolate
  • 1/2 Cup Light corn Syrup
  • Food colouring (optional)


  1. Chop Chocolate and place in a large microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave until melted, stirring every 45 seconds
  3. Remove and stir until smooth
  4. Add the corn syrup and stir until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
  5. Spoon mixture onto large piece of Gladwrap and wrap securely.
  6. Allow the chocolate to cool and solidify at room temperature, for at least 6hrs or overnight.
  7. Soften by kneading or microwave on short 10sec intervals till soft enough to work with.
  8. Continue to knead until smooth and pliable. If sticking dust your hands with icing sugar
  9. If your adding colour divide and knead in colour don't use too much as it may make it too soft again.
  10. Decorate as desired. I rolled flat and covered cake. Then made a bow with some I had coloured (it sits quite firm so no need to prop up)


You can use milk or dark chocolate. If using dark chocolate increase corn syrup to 2/3 cup. Also use cocoa powder when rolling instead of powdered sugar. This also works with your dairy free chocolates.
