Covering A Cake With Modeling chocolate

by carrie

Do you need to do a crumb coat or buttercream coat before covering a cake with modeling chocolate?

From the editor:

Hi Carrie,

When you want to use modeling chocolate to cover a cake, you treat it the same as if you were using fondant. So you would first crumb coat your cake, then add a layer of either buttercream or ganache before finishing with the modeling chocolate.

Thanks for your question.
