    I'm looking for his specific version of chocolate plastic. I've looked around at foodtv and mr. chocolate and not found it. If anyone wrote down his formula would you mind sharing it? TIA

    P.S. It had simple syrup in it besides corn syrup.

    Also I thought the idea of adding some h2o to get the chocolate to slightly seize up (when he piped that handle) was brilliant. I can't wait to try it!

    Wendy, if you use that formula will you let us know how it goes? The Cake Bible lists a simpler version with just white chocolate and corn syrup that I plan to use for white roses.

    My first attempt at it didn't work, but I'm figuring I mucked it up somehow. I just replenished my chocolate supply today so I'll be making a new batch soon.

    The reason I want to try this specific recipe was that they used simple syrup brushed on the edges to adhear each petal. Thats different and I'd like to see how it handles in comparision to reg. choc. and corn syrup recipes.
