I found such a good reception to the one I made for a friend- first one....it was so simple to make and yet it got such raves.... drives me nuts at times - it was the simple cake that took no time decorating that people go nuts for - lol....
anyway - my main question is what everyone does underneath the cake. I did a much smaller coating - basically a crumb coat and filling of buttercream and then the candy and kit kats - I found it freaky sweet and too much. The other person who wants one next week would like peanut butter filling and chocolate cake with the kit kats and reeses peices .... but has left it to me for the icing.....
Would you go with
stabilized whipped cream?
peanut butter frosting?
I'm at a loss and would love some opinions
I'd go with ganache.
I'd probably go with PB frosting, since it has a pb filling. Or with chocolate frosting.
thanks! I didn't want buttercream as much- but both suggestions sound good to me! I am leaning toward the ganache to make it richer- I am a sucker for ganache
Well, it's up to you! To me, (and I love rich things), I think that it would be too rich with the ganache. I'd only be able to eat a bite here and then eat a bite there.
Let us know what you decide to do!
