Can anybody tell me how to make the frosting they have on hostess cupcakes? It's thick enough to peel off of it. I haven't worked with anything other than buttercream or a ganache and neither one of those will work. I'm looking for a pourable frosting that will harden a bit. I want to make layered chocolate mouse cakes and frost them, then decorate each one like a present. Any help would be appreciated.

AOther than ganache, you can buy that fake chocolate fudge topping from a restaraunt supply store. It's thick, kinda gross, and probably exactly what you are looking for. It sets up just like the Hostess stuff. I work with it all the time. For an at-home application, I'd use ganache. Maybe a bit thicker than normal, and dip the cupcake for a smooth finish. Corn syrup might help with shine.
