Can I make ganache with chocolate frosting & heavy cream?
What are you going to use it in? Depending on the application, you might be able to use melted choc. frosting.
Im asking about on a cake, like a shining effect
No you can't. It will fall apart.
Oh ok, thanks
You can melt the chocolate icing in the microwave, and pour it over that cake.
with heavy cream? cuz Ive done that without it & it looked awful.
No.. it will look worse with the cream. You need to get some chocolate.
You can even use semi-sweet chocolate chips if you have them on hand. 8 ounces (by weight) of chocolate to 1 cup of a cream is a good ratio. If you need more you can double it. It's good on ice cream so if you have extra it's never a bad thing. Make sure you use no more than a semi-sweet chocolate.. milk chocolate won't work unless you cut out some of the cream and even then it's really sweet. Good luck!
Start with a 1 to 1 ratio of choc, and H cream. Bring the cream to a simmer, and pour over your chunked up choc to melt the choc. To make shiny put in a tad of corn syrup.
Hey thanks for the tip Mike, I will do that
