without it dripping down? Do you chill them first?

Also, sometimes I make cupcakes a little smaller in height than the wrappers. I would like to fill the space with ganache. Everytime I do this, it drips down the sides, and the wrapper comes off. How can I acheive this without messing up?

Thanks in advance thumbs_up.gif

According to this recipe for ganache it says to let it cool completely. I think too that if you find you want a thicker ganache, you just up the amount of chocolate in it. I haven't iced cupcakes, so I'm not certain, just working from the advice that I've been gathering.

I've dipped cupcakes in ganache before. I literally dipped them. Froze them first so the chocolate would cool quick and then dipped them upside down in thick ganache. My cupcakes are always a little higher than the wrapper though, I've never tried it if they are below the wrapper.
