HAHAHAHA!! You had a buttercream sundae!!! Screw the ice cream! icon_lol.gif You know, I used to use malt powder but it tended to give the icing a grainy feel unless you dissolved it in liquid first, so I was walking through WallyWorld and that bottle caught my eye. If you've looked through my gallery pix, you know I love me some Whoppers... so it just seemed to make sense. One of those things where it just *clicks*, ya know?

I don't know if I should go ahead and make them now or wait until tomorrow.

Oh sure, you found it while I was busy bagging on you! Hehehe.

As far as getting a nice ganache surface, the most important thing I can stress is to strain the finished ganache through a seive. Then I pour it over the cake but let it bounce off a spoon first (does that make sense?) so it doesn't mar the icing underneath. Then I also use the spoon to work it to the sides and down. Any specific q's... just ask me!! icon_wink.gif

Thanks for all the tips. I have some cupcakes in the freezer so that later when I have ideas for cupcakes I can just take them out and decorate them for my website. This is a really cool thread. Thanks

Yah, I think we need a cupcake forum! I've killed a lot of time lately checking out the many cupcake sites. I'm more enthused about cupcakes each time I start reading about them. I might try the peanut butter recipe posted here. I forgot who posted it but thanks! Sounds wonderful with whipped ganache.

Melvira, I'll be straining my ganache from now on. I made some yesterday and didn't realize the chocolate chips weren't all melted until I started icing my cake. But it was for us and it's all gone now anyway. If if it were for a customer I wouldn't have been happy with it.

Penny727, I feel for you. I'm working on taking off a little weight too and having a tough time. If I'm baking for others it's no problem staying away from the sweets. But when I'm trying out recipes it's harder. I find it's extremely helpful to take cakes to my former work place so they aren't here at home to tempt me. I think I'm going to start taking them to other places where my friends work, and ask everyone who tries some to do a quick written critique in the form of a questionaire. Even men can do that!

I'm trying to build up my list of flavorings for cakes and icings. This is the best way I know how. I also might check out what churches in my area have a coffee hour on Sunday's and take some cakes to them. I don't plan to do this every week but it's a good idea for when I try something new.
