The ideal working environment for modeling chocolate is a cool, 65°F (18°C), dry room with clean surfaces and equipment. Do not work directly in sunlight. Minimize contact with moisture and humidity. The optimal tabletop is clean, smooth, and made from a stone that retains cool temperatures such as marble, glass, or granite. Stainless steel or laminate counter tops are adequate. Avoid wood, whose grain is too porous.

Just wondering if you have ever used the pasta machine for embossing modeling chocolate? I’m on my second modeling chocolate cake and am considering the purchase of a simple pasta machine. While surfing the net I found that the pasta machine can be used for embossing paper and wondered if it would work on modeling chocolate. Thanks and Happy Holidays!
I highly recommend the use of a pasta machine for modeling chocolate as it makes the rolling process much easier. As for embossing, you don’t need the pressure of a machine to make an imprint like you do with paper. Modeling chocolate is soft enough that you can easily emboss by hand. So I don’t think the machine is necessary in that case.
Do you use acrylic rolling pins? I am looking at some that are 6-8-18 inches in length. What would you recommend? Thank you for your time!
These are two sites I am looking at.
Yes – I do own one of those pins with the pattern in it. I would recommend a pin that is at least 10″ wide.
