Can you cover a ganache cake with fondant
Can a cake filled with buttercream, and sealed with ganache, then be covered in fondant?
I know that a cake can be filled, and covered with a a layer of ganache, CAN it be covered in fondant? In fact that is the way the Australian bakers get their sharp edges on their fondant cakes.
What I want to make sure of is, can the cake be filled with buttercream and not the ganache. I have watched the tutorials Inspired by Michele's Cakes. Very good 3 part series....but she fills all of her cakes with ganache.
I would like to fill mine with buttercream. thx! I don't see any reason why you cannot fill your cakes with buttercream and then cover your cakes with the gancahe and then fondant.
I would make sure that your cakes are nice and cold, fill them with your buttercream, let them sit for a few minutes to chill the filling. You can place them back in the fridge for a while. Then ganache the cakes and let it set again.
Finally you can place the fondant on top of that. Hope that helps you out.
