Just came across this person's flickr and she has a number of awesome cakes just like this one. My question is, did she put the ganache over fondant or over buttercream? the cake is so perfectly smooth that I can't even tell.

to me it looks like buttercream, the way the light is hitting the divits on the side like her spatula dragged across the cake board, I have had this happen to many time LOL

It's probably ganache over butter cream frosting. It does look delicious.

She does a lot of poured ganache under buttercream.

On top of that, it's Swiss Meringue Buttercream, non crusting.

The definitely looks like SMBC or IMBC with the ganache over it. Those berries are SO perfect... I am absolutely drooling! The whole cake is perfect, and it's making me hungry!! thumbs_up.gif
