Long time lurker, first time poster, :)
I am relatively new to cake decorating, have only made a few cakes that have not been spectacular failures, (added a couple of photos to my profile if you feel like a looksee)
This weekend i am making quite a large caramel mud cake (using the bakels caramel mud mix here in Oz)
Can anyone recommend a good Caramel buttercream or ganache recipe that would be nice with a caramel mud,
I am also doing a second smaller tier in white choc mud and will be using white choc ganache for this
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks alot :D
This recipe is excellent. You could add godiva caramel liqueur to put it over the top!
Also, you could buy caramel in a jar (I would get a fairly thick, good homemade type made with butter, sugar and cream). If needed, melt slightly and cool. Gradually add to finished plain vanilla buttercream. I have done this many times with SMBC. I don't know if it would work with ABC - may be way too sweet.
You could also add homemade caramel or good caramel in a jar to chocolate SMBC or ganache. Gradually mix into the finished frosting until you get the desired balance of flavors. Chocolate and caramel are a great combo.
