I want to make these cupcakes tonight. My guess is that it's ganache roses dusted with gold luster dust.
My question is: Did they pour the ganache over the cupcake and let it cool for a smooth finish first? And do you whip the ganache if you want to pipe roses with it? And is there a good way to dust edges without making a mess?
These will be a first for me, so any insight is appreciated. I am making mocha cupcakes with ganache frosting. (can you add coffee to ganache? or would that be overkill?)

I'm no expert but the cupcake does appear to be dipped first for smoothness. I don't believe the ganache is whipped. When you whip ganache it becomes airy. It appears to be piped as you would a regular buttercream rose. Yes you can add a little coffee or espresso to the ganache to boost the chocolate flavor after you melt the chocolate with the cream.

so dip the cupcake rather then pour ganache...I can do that. thanks for answering...I've never worked with ganache before other then to cover 1 cake - it was so tasty, I can't wait to try decorating with it!
