Hi,

I've an order for high school musical ice-cream cake and i have some doubts. Can ice-cream experts pls help me out. Here's what i intend to do:

a) frost the ice-cream cake with ganache - is this possible?
b) make an edible image of high school musical and place it on the ganache frosted cake - can i do this?
c) the top layer - should it be the cake or ice-cream.

Thank you.

The ganche yes you can do on an ice cream cake. Cake should be on the top it's easier to handle this way and the ganache won't melt the ice cream. As for the transfer I don't know but hopefully someone else will be able to tell you. If the shop that you bought if from is open I would call and ask them.

For the very few IC cakes I have made I sandwiched the IC between two thin layers of cake (one 2" layer split; the IC between them).
Once it is iced w/b'cream (I don't remember ever icing a whole cake w/ganache) then there is no problem putting a frosting sheet on.
You might want to put the fs on a thin fondant 'plaque' instead of directly on the cake....especially if the ganache is choco (or other than white). HTH
