I will be making some petit fours tomorrow and would love to hear what others ideas are. What about using ganache? I've never tried it but I've seen other cakes with it that looked really smooth.

I require that minis be fondant covered becasue I consider it the easiest. I dont' use MMF however, only SatinIce.
