Does anyone know if I can adhere fondant billows (puffs) directly onto ganache? The tutorials always use a fondant covered cake. In a bit of a time crunch and would rather not cover the whole cake in fondant if I didn't have to. Not for a customer, just for a party I'm going to.
It would depend on how firm the ganache was, how heavy the billows are, and what you're sticking them on with. I wouldn't try it, personally, unless I would be able to keep the cake cold until it was delivered and set up. If the ganache was really firm it might hold up but if the fondant billows are heavy they could slide right off
Honestly, it's takes very little time to cover a cake with fondant. Especially when the sides will be covered with billows, therefore they dont' have to be perfect (don't erven have to be even very good.)
Thanks for your replies...I did end up just throwing fondant on the cake and sticking them on :)
