I've been asked to do a cookie monster cake. The actual cookie monster I will fashion out of RKT, and I wanted to frost him with ganache, to make him a bit more solid...question then is will the BC frosting fur adhere to the ganache?
If not, what should I use?
sorry, trying to bump this to see if anyone can help me...I don't have alot of time before I have to make it and I too much going on to experiment with it right now...hoping someone will have an answer for me.
I actually crumb coat my RKT characters with buttercream and then I put the fondant on. So you could definitely do the buttercream on buttercream.
I have no idea about the ganache - but if nothing else, hopefully this will help get some other people moving.
Whenever i've made my rkt's i've used royal icing to cover them and fill in the tiny holes then fondant. Buttercream on buttercream will work just fine also.Ganache seems like a waste because your probly not going to eat it so it will save on the cost.
I plan on making the RKT a peanut butter RKT with the ganache as a frosting...the birthday boy loves them...so I thought it would be good to incorporate in with the cake. Otherwise I think the royal icing is a good idea.
I did try this out on an extra half ball cake I haad in the freezer...so far the buttercream is adhering, hasn't fallen off...so I think I'll go ahead and try it...thought that would be good to do with the arms too.
