curvy edged chocolate wall

i wanted to try covering a cake’s side with chocolate, so i experimented with modeling chocolate (aka chocolate plastic). it is a mixture of melted chocolate and corn syrup and the final result has the consistency of tootsie rolls. modeling chocolate can also be used to sculpt with, but i rolled it out into a thin layer using a rolling pin and cocoa powder to prevent sticking. i also used a knife to cut out a freeform edge, and applied the layer to the edge of the cake.
