Hello,

I hope someone can help me.

I would like to make a cake in a pumpkin shape.

I tried to pour it with a ganache of orange candy melt, but you see the chocolate cake under the ganache. It is to transparent. icon_mad.gif

That is just a small cake, that is the reason I don't want to cover him with fondant.

But when I take just the candy melt that is to thick.

Have anyone a advice for me or a better idea?

Can you add another layer of the candy melt?

I tried this and the first one was melting.

What if you put the cake in the freezer, then poured the next layer on? Maybe that would prevent the other layer from melting.

I will try this, after the first time freeze and then the second time.

Have anyone tried pour fondant glaze? One lady from Germany means that could work.

I've read you can melt buttercream and pour it like poured fondant, just tint some buttercream if you have some already made up. Good luck
