Considering trying to ice a cake in ganache. I'm wondering if I can then take some of that ganache with a bag/tip and then decorate the cake with it as well? I don't see why not, but since I'm new I better make sure. icon_smile.gif
Thanks!

You sure can! Just let it get to the right consistency first. I usually use it to pour over a buttercream crumb coat. When that is set, trim the bottom edge with same ganache when it is firm enough to pipe. (Watch the warmth of your hand though, it will loosen the ganache as you pipe.)
