Hi bindubnair

I would try just using a little amount of cocoform. See if it works. I haven’t done this myself but if no-one comes up with a definite yes try emailing or phoning

they sell coco form paste and are usually helpful

Hi bindubnair

You could also use half gumpaste and half modelling chocolate to make your flowers. I find making modelling chocolate ornaments harden much more when made well in advance and kept in the fridge stored in a box. As you need them for immediate use it may be worth experimenting as suggested by Jayess. I often find spraying with a lustre spray or glaze can act as a hardener. I can’t see anything setting chocolate solid in extreme heat, it may be you will have to consider another medium in which to make your flowers. Sorry I can’t be of more help.
