so i dont really do much in terms of cake the only cakes i make usualy are single layer or crumb or bunt type cakes. I saw this photo of a cake that looks super easy to make
its a cake that is frosted in buttercream then has ganache on top that is dripping down the sides of the cake simple cake i figured i could pipe around the bottom and top maybe sprinkle the sides or on top maybe a few waffle cones pieces dipped in chocolate on top
i have the deep 9 inch wilton pan i was thinking making two cakes in that cutting them in half so i would have 4 layers i would fill each layer with chocolate mousse ice in white buttercream and then do a semi sweet ganache or bittersweet ganache on top for a cake that size would i need any type of supports?
its a birthday cake for my dad and not a cilent so dont have to have it super perfect but i dont want it to fall apart in transporting it
If it's a single tier you don't need any supports.
yes it it will be a single tier 4 layers i am doing two cakes in the wilton deep round pan i think its 9 inches its the pan that a whole box of cake mix will fit and bake into it
also should i let the cake crust before putting the ganache on top i dont want to melt the buttercream with the chocolate or should i let ganche get to room temp but still pourable
