is it possible to crumb coat a cake in chocolate buttercream & then cover it in white fondant?? or is chocolate ganache better? I was asked to make a small wedding cake in white fondant but they want the entire cake crumb coated in chocolate butter cream or ganache ! has anyone done this before ? Help please
AI've done this. I just made the fondant thicker.. But I use a crusting buttercream and it doesn't really seap or melt into the fondant.. So it may not work for some. And I didn't do it way in advance. Day of needed
all the time. All. The. Time. Never have a problem. (I use MMF)
AYup, i this all the time as well.. I use chocolate swiss meringue buttercream... ;)
oh my! thank you can you share the recipe ?
awesome thank you!! Have you tried chocolate ganache and fondant over it?
Thank you so, much . Do you have a recipe for the chocolate butter cream you used? Do you mind sharing please
I pretty much taste mine as I go..
but I pretty much use
1 stick Crisco, 1 stick butter.(same size)
few splashes of vanilla.
tbsp. milk, then I add powdered sugar to taste, and consistency. I usually use 5 cups.
that is my vanilla buttercream recipe, it's so good.
then for any flavors I just ad them in at end, and same with color !
so if i'm making chocolate buttercream, I would ad melted chocolate chips ( milk, white, dark, whatever)
but when I take it out of microwave I stir chocolate for a good 30 seconds before I put into buttercream.
then I use my hand mixer on second highest speed till mixed in :)
usually 1 cup chocolate chips is what I add. more or less depending on howmuch icing needed.
and if it happens to be a bit soft from chocolate I add a tad more powdered sugar and it pipes beautifully, stays in place.... I love it
I never use all butter buttercream. tried making it once and it was gross to me, and always looked moist..
no matter how many other ingredients I could always just taste butter lol. I only like butter on corn on the cob and that sort of thing, not on cupcakes.ewww.
Thank you so, so much for the recipe and for taking the time to reply I truly appreciate it
thank you! ;)
you're welcome :)
I agree I have done this a few times now and had never had any problems, I make sure my icing is quite thick though.
