I just prefer a higher quality chocolate. But a couverture chocolate is most desirable for a good ganache. Here is what couverture chocolate is http://www.thenibble.com/REVIEWS/main/chocolate/couverture-chocolate.asp , and where I get my chocolate sometimes: http://www.auiswisscatalogue.com/1_CHOC/Chocolate.html

I don't know if US choc chips are the same as Australian choc melts but I used melts once and the taste was awful and it didn't set properly. You want at least 45% cocoa solids (but no more than about 70%)

I dunno. I wouldn't go to the trouble of doing ganache to cover it up with BC. Someone must have done this though.

I use HERSHEYS choc chips. People have given my rave reviews about the taste! I've heard Toll House does not melt smoothly

Sugarandslice--thanks for the input about reheating and stirring to get the texture--I appreciate it!

I wish I could take classes for some of this stuff--I know it isn't that hard to get it from reading and trial and error, but I learn so much better from hands on demonstration! I'm jealous of those of you who got to take the class from PC--I love the book!

Can you attach fondant decorations to a ganached cake?

post #25 of 25
Yes, but I usually cover with a layer of fondant over the anachr, then attach decorations. Theoretically it's possible to attach decos to ganache though, although I'm not sure what look you're going for.
Just brush ganache with cooled boiled water or syrup to get fondant to adhere.
