I thought I read a post on here a while back where someone had done so and when they woke up the next morning the fondant had seperated. Not sure if this is normal or just the type of fondant used. Sorry haven't done it myself. But then I know I have seen it posted where people do it all the time too.

sugarshacks's dvd on topsy turvy.. is showing this.. it is wonderful.. as well as all of hers.. so, lots of people are beginning more to use ganache under fondant. don,t know if some kind of fondant doesn,t work . or what.. maybe homemade that is too soft . don,t know.. sugarshack usually uses satin ice fondant..hth

i forgot to add that sugarshack.. puts ganache on.. smooths it with a scraper.. then lets it sit overnite.. it harders. pretty good.. then she shows how to clean it up and then applies her fondant. she doesn,t apply it right after she puts ganache on. hope this makes sense... thats probably where people are having their problems. applying fondant ,right after the ganache application..

Ganache is the only thing I will ever use.
