It works fabulous under rolled fondant. Very sturdy and very smooth.

Do you use the pour method with that?

absolutely! I just wrote a post about this topic on my blog: truffletramp.blogspot.com
I don't use the pour method-I make a big thing of really smooth ganache and then let it set up to be a smooth peanut butter consistency and then I spread it on the cake like I would BC. After I let it set up I put another layer on and then wait for it to harden and it works great. If you hot knife it after you get a super smooth finish to go under your fondant. icon_smile.gif

Those cakes look awsome, nice edges icon_smile.gif <---- Jealous lol. I was wondering would I be able to do the first coat with poured ganache then add the second with a more spreadable ganache??

I did my first ganache and fondant cake a couple of weeks ago, and I loved the look it gave. I did use the "pour" method and it seemed to work really well for me, of course I was doing a pregnant belly cake so the ganache had a nice, round surface to cover; maybe that helped.
