I did a search for this, but couldn't find anything. I want to make cakes for my daughter's class that look like ice cream sundaes. I've made them before, but used candy melts to mimic the hot fudge sauce.
I was wondering if I could use the Magic shell sauce instead. It would be so much easier. I don't know if the cake has to be cold in order for the shell to harden. Also, will the shell stay hard if not kept in the fridge?
Thanks for any answers!
I've never used magic shell on a cake before but I have on ice cream. But when the ice cream melts and come to room temp so does the magic shell. It does kept it shape some what but is very soft. I found a bowl that "had" ice cream w/magic shell on it under my DDs bed this morning! Why not use a chocolate ganache? 1 cup chocolate chips 3 tbls heavy whipping cream...melt in microwave thats for a small amount hth
I agree the ganach would be so much better. I find the majic shell very waxy tasting, I also think the cake would have to be very cold to harden.
Thanks for the help! I was worried that the magic shell would soften up. The candy melts I used looked good, but was a little hard to spread around. I think I'll go with that small batch of ganache that cakeladyofga suggested.
