Sorry about your food processor. Maybe you could use liquor (as recommended by gap) to thin the PDF. So how does the finished product taste? How is the sweetness level (I would assume the PDF part is on the rather sweet side since you added corn syrup)?
I like your shell decoration. Do you mind telling how you did it? And what sort of brush did you use for the white dots and the yellow streaks?
It didn't take very much corn syrup to get to a pipeable consistency. There is so much sugar and corn syrup in the PDF to begin with. I didn't really notice any additional sweetness. I would like to experiment with using alcohol to thin it out. I could have maybe used a coconut rum in this case.
The shell was done with a spatter of white cocoa butter done by running my fingers across the bristles of a toothbrush, then a splatter of yellow made by shaking a paint brush. Then a finger swirl of a light green, then airbrush half red and half darker green.
