chocolate cake filled with peanut butter mousse, frosting suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am fairly new to cake making. I have an order placed for a chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse. Client has left it to me to decide what frosting to use. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. I typically use buttercream. Is that okay for a chocolate cake? Should I use ganache? Chocolate buttercream? Helppppp!! LOL! Thanks SO much!!!  icon_biggrin.gif

Personally, I would use either chocolate buttercream or peanut butter frosting with chocolate ganache drizzled over the top.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Is this a decorated cake or a dessert cake? If it is to be decorated, I would use buttercream, and if it is dessert, I would use ganache.

I guess I should have said the cake will be fondant covered...icon_eek.gif Does that make a difference with the ganache?

Nope, you can cover it with ganache and then fondant! Yum!
