I did my first cake covered in chocolate ganache prior to covering in fondant. Like someone else said on the forum I WILL NEVER USE BUTTERCREAM AGAIN UNDER FONDANT. I am totally buttercream challenged!!!! I would have gladly paid someone to ice my cakes, but now I have ganache so there's no need (hope they can slice through everything). Thank you so much to everyone who posts with their tips and how to's. I would probably have quit by now if it wasn't for you guys! thanks to annakguzzo for her inspiration.
Bonnie...did you whip the ganache or pour it? I'd like to know which way is best.
I am my no means an expert on this. This was my first time using it. I spread it on like you would frosting and smoothed it out with a bench scraper. Hope this helps!
Oh and run the bench scraper under very hot water, be sure to dry it, then smooth out. Good Luck! It's wonderful!
