Modeling chocolate, also known as modelling chocolate, moulding chocolate, or chocolate clay, can be marbled in infinite ways. It’s an easy technique that involves twisting and folding two or more colors together repeatedly. The results may be used to render cloudy sky, churning water, marbled stone, and wood grain looks on cakes. It may be used to add depth and character to flowers and leaves. It may be used as a patterned cake wrap. Here are some more examples of the effects that can be achieved with marbleized modeling chocolate.
