I intend to make a chocolate cake for my younger sister’s birthday. I had a couple of questions.
For the frosting, I wished to add dark chocolate ganache between the layers and top the cake with seven minute frosting. Actually I wished to use buttercream but since using buttercream will not give me a stark white look and i do not wish to use vegetable shortening in the icing; I was wondering if chocolate ganache and a seven minute frosting would go well together on a chocolate cake?
I also wanted to know whether seven minute frosting could be piped into pearls or round blobs to form a border to the cake and will it hold form?
And, I also wanted to know if anyone had a white buttercream recipe (no vegetable shortening).
