Has anyone tried to mix some whipped (or unwhipped) chocolate ganache into buttercream to make a chocolate buttercream? Just curious - it sounds like it might work.

I've combined ganache with IMBC - works great!

I've made a batch of both (ganache and BC) and combined them to make chocolate buttercream. It must have a million calories and all from fat--but it's yummy!

I just whip the ganache. You have to wait until it's cold to do it though. If you want to cut down on the richness I suppose you could add it to the buttercream, but I like pure, unadulterated ganache!

My ganache pinwheel cake in my photos is garnished with whipped ganache rosettes.

Here is a cake that I made...covered it in chocolate ganche...then let the left over ganache cool down and added it to my butter cream...the swirls and border are ganache butter cream...it was good...everyone loved it.
