Can I cover a ganache cake with regalicing/fondant

by April Reede
(UK)

I am making a ganache cake and am concerned if the fondant/Regalice will adhere to the soft ganache mixture.


Please advise

Thanks
April

Hi April, I don't see why the fondant will not adhere to a soft ganache. Is it white or dark? My concern if it is dark chocolate is that you will see the color through the fondant, in which case I would give the cake a buttercream coating before applying your RegalIce. (this is what I do) Please let me know how the cakes come out. You can reply under this post by clicking on the comments link.

Thanks April

Ganache

You can use the hard ganache (it has a buttercream consistency) instead of the soft ganache. It just fine if you use it under fondant no matter what color. If you want to get really sharp edges go for it, it is awesome. If you need the recipe let me know.

Ganache
by: Helga

Like Lorelie's said if the fondant is too thin definitely the ganache would show up. I also had covered a cake with white fondant and it works ok.

Ganache
by: Helga

This is the recipe that I used (is from Planet Cake)
2 lb 10 oz. Dark chocolate, finely chopped
2 1/3 cups plus 1 tablespoon whipping cream

1. Put the chocolate pieces in a large bowl.
2. Put the cream in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Pour the cream over the chocolate and mix with a whisk until is completely smooth. Don't use an electric whisk, because will create too many air bubbles in it.

3. Allow to cool completely and then leave to set overnight.
4. Keep it in the fridge
5. To reheat it just put the ganache in the microwave for a few seconds at a time.

This recipe is really good..! :?)

Thanks Helga I also have a chocolate ganache recipe on this site. The only difference is I add corn syrup(optional) to make it shiny for poured ganache. There is a video that can also be watched as I make it.
