I would like to cover a two-tier hexagonal cake in dark chocolate ganache and to apply fondant panels to each side, not covering the entire side. I would also like to attach some fondant decorations to the edges and sides - trims and moulded bunches of grapes. Just wondering would this work or would the panels and decorations slide down the ganache? Do I, in fact, need to lay fondant over the ganache?
Looking forward to guidance.
It will work.
Thank you Apti.
Here's a photo of a cake done recently for a neighbor's graduation from college. It was my gift. She specifically requested chocolate ganache "frosting" and filling with dark chocolate cake. The hat is made with black candy melts, and fondant tassel. The 2015 and UCSD are fondant. The middle tier is also chocolate ganache, but I covered it with a layer of buttercream so I would have contrast between the tiers.
Sorry, the site won't let me print a photo.
Well, good morning! Looks like we are both up at the crack o' dawn.
If y'all send me a PM with your regular email addresses (if you care that much, it's just another cake....no biggie) I can attach it to a reply email. This new format is making me nuts....NOTHING works. I'll bet the site owners wish they'd never started this horrendous "make-over". Heck, we don't even know if PM's work anymore.
Webake2gether ~~ I'm off to another fun day of crafting with polymer clay. This cake thing is pushing all the creativity buttons I never knew I had and now it's rolling over to non-edible stuff. Sheesh! What's next? Making yarn sweaters? Birdhouses?
I looove polymer clay.
Knitten' some mittens? Haha
i just wanted to gawk at your work is all :)
