I need to know which is better to cover and sandwich a cake with please... Am thinking ganache is richer due to being chocolate and cream (is that all?!) and maybe yummier? Only thinking this as buttercream would be made of cocoa powder and butter etc? Any ideas please....
Cunning plan norks - loving your name!! OMDB, I realise there are other options, I have the cake ready and waiting, I have cream, chocolate, butter and all things bad for you on standby waiting for me to make my mind up between the two... Whats boaktastic?! Horrible I am guessing...?
Thanks people will go with buttercream filling and ganache coating. Oooh tell me how to make merigue toppping I might have the ingredients... Would it go on a chocolate cake though?! If not whats it best on? Thaaaanks
God that sounds amazing! Buttercream to me is the yummy stuff that one piles onto a cupcake to make it very pretty and tasty, I had no idea it was so hated in general! I was going to cheer my friend up with some cupcakes with a bit of chocolate buttercream on , but am reconsidering now!
Oooh will ask for you the next cake I make then Does 7 minute icing have cream of tartar? Am v tempted as you can probably tell! Is the 7 minute one as yummy? I don't mind spending a bit longer for a yummier result... Though I do need to make a dahl, a curry, onion hajis and some other stuff tonight so maybe time saving is a good idea!
OMG I really shouldn't have opened this thread. My restraint wrt baking is based entirely on the fact that I find buttercream too sickly. I had no idea that there were such luscious alternatives. Oh dear.
Thank you so much for your help OMDB! Will go to shop just in case for c.o.t Yes its my stepmothers birthday tomorrow and we are making a feast, but she doesn't know so I am having to make a load of curries etc and transport them over to theirs tomorrow afternoon. Also have birthday cake responsibilities
