Hey all,


I have been searching for an answer all over the forum for this question but haven't found a decent answer:


Is it possible to stencil buttercream over a ganache covered cake after the ganache has thoroughly cooled/dried?


I am planning to make a simple two-layer 9" round cake covered in ganache. I dont want to just do a simple powdered sugar stencil -its for a nice, dressy pre-wedding occassion so I want to make it look classy. 


I thought of stenciling with maybe lustre dust, but that may require a LOT of dust.


Any suggestions?

This is buttercream on buttercream not sure if it would work if you tried putting buttercream on the ganache.

I guess I will just have to test it on some ganache on parchment paper or something like that. In my mind, it should work if I let it get hard enough, as with a crusting buttercream, but I guess there is only one way to find out! Thanks for the video though.
