How to make chocolate ganache for decorating cakes
This is the first in a three part video tutorial series that shows you how to get those sharp edges on your fondant covered cakes.
“How do you get your smooth sharp edges?” This is the question I get asked the most about cake decorating and I think the answer is a combination of how I use the ganache and the way I use two cake smoothers to get the sharp edge.
None of it is difficult but I warn you the videos are my usual simple presentation!!!
- The first video shows you a quick and easy method for making chocolate ganache in the microwave oven. It show the consistency I use etc.
- The second video show how I set up the cake using a base board and a very simple tool that gives the smooth edges. Link to this 2nd video.
- The third video shows how I use two cake smoothers to finish the fondant cake with a sharp edge. Link to this 3rd video.
This is 1 of 3 cake tutorial videos.
I hope you find this helpful and it answers your questions. Make sure you watch all three videos to get all the tips and tricks.
Bye for now, Michelle
