AHi all! I am sitting here watching Lauren Kitchens' Football helmet DVD (Yay!!) and have a question.

She fills, stacks and lightly crumb coats her cake (with all butter BC) and chilling prior to carving. I wanted to use ganach as a coating on my helmet.

Any suggestions? Think I should fill (with ABC) and chill, carve then coat with ganache ??? I'm not feeling putting a ganach into the fridge or carving a cake with ganache.

Any help is appreciate it!! Thank you

AWhy ganache before carving?

Other than snacking purposes... :D

I always layer and ganache the base cake shape before carving - I find it helps to keep the structure firm and less likely for chunks to break off
