Can anyone recommend what would be best to use when icing cake to put fondant on. I have been told to use Ganache but also Buttercream Icing. Any suggestions please icon_biggrin.gif

Either one is right. Once you try a few you'll see what you're most comfortable using.

Either really, i used ganash for a long time as it was the favoured choice to have. But recently, ive had alot more kids cakes to do, and the choice for them is buttercream, i never used to like working with it but im really starting to enjoy it

I like to use ganache when at all possible, but sometimes the flavors just don't jive, and I'm not a fan of white chocolate so I end up using buttercream instead....and I don't like to use ganache on kids cakes either...more of an adult thing I think.

I think ganache for wedding & adult cakes is the best choice (where you want the best finish possible), but for kids cakes buttercream is fine.
