Lolll - sometimes it the simplest things that we overlook when trying to solve a problem -
Glad i could be of help...
If you dont find any info - this is how i do it.....
Place your 7 inch cake on a 7 inch cake board
Ganache your cake.
Allow to *set up and air dry* to the touch
Turn cake up side down
Place another 7 inch cake board on the *new* top
Ganache your cake again....
Smooth off any excess ganache
Allow to air dry and set up.
When cake is ready to be covered - get your hot dry spatular/knife and gently glide it under the cake board to lift it off.
Then just smooth off any little dent that might have occured .
Voula - you have a beautiful evenly covered *sharp* edged ganachd cake.
