How To Make Modeling Chocolate Penguins
TWO BASIC TECHNIQUES FOR MODELING
• FLATTEN Roll out about 1/8” thick and cut flat pieces for thin shapes like the bow or poinsettia.
• ROUND Use a small chunk to make a ball in your hands, then shape for three dimensional figures like the mouse.
BASIC FIGURES (ROUND TECHNIQUE)
• Begin with a ball. Shape the ball into a pear shape, log, or snake depending on the figure you will make.
• Flatten a small ball to make a dot.
• Pinch tiny pieces into pointy beaks, flat ears, round eyes, a nose. •
Make cuts and separate parts like a beak, legs, tail or fingers.
• Let pieces rest and cool before putting figures together if they get soft or sticky.
Start with a ball for the body. Make one end longer like a bowling pin then bend a bit to curve the body.
Finish the penguin with pinches or cut-outs for feet and a tiny carrot shaped beak. For eyes use tiny modeling chocolate balls or writing chocolate and a toothpick.
