White Chocolate Sour Cream Ganache

  Posted by ycknits I've seen comments in forum entries about how to make white chocolate ganache using sour cream instead of whipping cream. I searched every which way, but could not come up with the ratio. So, after digging around on the web and finding small quantity recipes, here is what I came up with for a larger batch. It doesn't even require measuring the ingredients. I prefer this recipe to standard white chocolate ganache because it is not so sweet (and so delicious that you will want to eat it with a... read more

Shelf stable cream cheese icing

Posted by SugarQueenie I have a client who has requested a red velvet/cream cheese cake with fondant.

I got rave reviews and no one could tell the difference (although I could slightly). This may have been done before, but hopefully this helps someone. Ingredients Amount Ingredient 1 cup hi ratio shortening 1.5 cups shelf stable cream cheese filling 2 lbs powdered sugar 2... read more

Eggwhite Gumpaste

Posted by Kimbecupcake This is my favorite gumpaste recipe. It dries light and strong and is easy to make. The recipe is taken from the ebook "Icing Only" by Kim Knott. It is ready to use immediately if you use shortening on your hands but will be even easier to work with if you let it sit overnight in an airtight plastic container or plastic bag. The recipe makes 2.5 cups of gumpaste and works beautifully in silicon molds. The roses in the picture were shaped by hand, then when dry, dusted with Wilton pearl dust. The leaves were colored by mixing leaf green paste color... read more
