Rated 5 out of 5 by Paygep from Drip cake with candy melts ganache Candy melts ganache works way better for a drip cake than the cookie icing drip featured elsewhere on this site. Here is the same design again but the drips are better looking, thicker and they set when chilled instead of staying wet. Used only about 6 tablespoons of cream instead of the full half cup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SweetsByShina from It serves its own purpose... I would say this would be a great alternative to fondant, if the need is required. Would I use this as a filling? Maybe not, because the taste of the candy melts leaves you wanting a more robust/real chocolate flavor. But again, as a top coat (maybe the final coat on top of traditional ganache instead of fondant), it would serve its purpose as being colorful, smooth and stable. Especially in the warmer months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cakes That Rock from I use candy bars instead of candy melts. If it is good enough to eat by itself it will be really good in the ganache!! You may also add vanilla( 1 teaspoon), real unsalted butter, powdered sugar or clear corn syrup for a rich ganache ( never adding more than 2 tablespoons of any of these per one pound of chocolate). Play around and you will find a good amount. Remember just stir until mixed. If you over mix it will be riddled with bubbles
