I am doing away with buttercream icing. I just don't like it and have decided to use the ganache under my fondant cakes. I noticed a few CC'ers make their own ganache and was wondering have anyone purchased ganache filing to iced their cakes rather than making the ganache as it can be trickly.
I have never seen ganache at a store before. Now, that doesn't mean some place doesn't sell it - to be honest I have never looked for it before.
I have made ganache more times that I can count and have never found it tricky. I have read on the forums of people having problems but I have never experienced any issues. Because of this, I would probably always make it and not purchase it.
I too never saw ganache selling in stores. I actually just made chocolate ganache for the 2nd time using the correct 2:1 ratio after being convinced by CCers how great this is for cakes with fondant. Came out nice and shiny. I followed inspired by michelle's youtube video to do this. I found it really easy to make. Waiting for it to set up. Check out her video and see if it is something you might like to try. I did the same microwave technique.
