My daughter and I went to a birthday party last weekend and the cake was beautiful. It was Halloween themed and covered in a really yummy, fudgy icing that was also quite thick. And it was SO smooth. It was supposed to be a takeoff on The Cheesecake Factory's Blackout Cake, for those who are familiar. I'm wondering if it's some sort of ganache b/c it was so flawless I thought it was fondant when I first saw it. Any ideas? I'd really love to make something like this.

if it came from a bakery it was probably a commercial icing. the bakery i work at uses one from Dawn Foods, and i could eat it by the plate full it is yummy. dark and thick.

Nope, it was made by scratch. Everything in this bakery is made by scratch, except the fillings. Those were in the buckets. The fudge icing, the buttercream, the german chocolate icing..everything..was scratch.
