Is it possible to do the brush embroidery on ganache glaze with ganache or would it ruin the glaze?
Bueller? Bueller? Anyone, anyone?
Nobody? Should I assume silence means no?
I'm sorry you haven't gotten a response to your question. I've checked back a few times to see. I have never done this technique on ganache, so I really couldn't say. I've done it on buttercream with no problems though. Hope someone can help you soon.
I think you should give it a try and let us know! I've never even thought of that before.
I think it would be hard to do. Perhaps if you were VERY gentle and used a very soft brush you could do it. Be patient and slow and it may come out. Let us know!!
I will definitely try this! Thanks everyone!
What about doing the brush embroidery off the cake & applying it when dry ?
How do I do that?
How do I do that? The design I'm doing is very delicate.
Ok, you have your design on paper, tape the paper to cardboard / cakeboard then tape a piece of wax paper over the top of that ( small pieces of tape , top & bottom ).
Then you pipe & brush your design onto the paper,same as if it was on the cake - leave to dry completely & then carefully ( after removing tape ) peel the PAPER away from underneath the piped design & attach it to your cake !
Hope that makes sense
My daughter just did a completely ganach covered cake, she piped the vines directly on it but the leaves she made separately and let dry then attached. Here is link to a BC iced cake I made, with brushed embroidery floweres. I made them off the cake and attached at the reception
I didn't realize that ganache hardened enough to do that?
If you're doing the brush embroidery with ganache, then no, it won't set enough to do it off the cake - I thought you were doing it with RI
Not RI, ganache I'm goign to try it this weekend and post a pic of the results.
Ok I couldn't wait. Here is what it looks like on what is left of a cake. I made one last night, and then a couple of friends came over today so I gave them some and had one slice left to try this.
Not bad, I think. It does gunk up the brush more than RI does but I think the effect is pretty good. I let the ganache set up on the cake for 12 hours so it had "hardened" enough that the brush didn't tear it at all!
Good to know for future!
Thanks for all of your advice!
