Piping roses

Here are some more cupcakes with little roses piped on.  I used whipped ganache for the roses and the leaves are made from fondant. I’m very pleased with how these cupcakes turned out. Look at those perfect round tops! 😀 I don’t usually get them so good and I’ve realised that the key is…. good ganache.

If your ganache is too runny, there is no way you’re going to get a good smooth consistency and be able to apply it and shape the ganache on top of the cupcake. And if your ganache underneath the fondant is not smooth, then the fondant isn’t going to sit nicely on top. So, when you try to make these, make sure your ganache is perfect to apply.

  1. They look great, I love that you use ganache for everything because at the end of the day I think taste is the most important!

    For rich cakes like white choc mud, try sour cream white choc ganache – less sweet and dangerously tasty!
