Hi. If i want to fill a cake with buttercream, dulce de leche abc in one case and mango smbc in another, and frost in ganache under fondant, is this too much?


I find covering with ganache under fondant much easier as a novice- fewer bulges, firmer surface, easier to smooth,etc. but if i dont want to fill with ganache i'm afraid that there is way too much going on for a single slice of cake... would i be better frosting with the buttercream taste wise?

I think the ganache and dulce de leche sound great...not sure about the mango...I don't  think it's the ganache that's causing the confusion I think it's the two fillings not going together...JMO....:)

To clarify, those fillings are not going together. Its just one or the other (different tiers). So I would have mango smbc, white choc ganache and fondant on one tier, and dulce de leche bc, white chocolate ganache and fondant on another...


I want sharp corners and have trouble doing that with bc alone under fondant.

well sure, why not.  (I also would not care for those two fillings together :)  )

but if a person can choose between a piece of cake with mango, or a piece with dulce de leche. aok

good luck with your cake.
