Drippy Ganache & Buttercream Stripes Donut Cake
Video on how I made the doughnuts, the buttercream stripes, and the drippy ganache!
Drippy Ganache & Striped Buttercream Donut Cake

An extremely sugary icing that dries very stiff! Used for attaching decorations or as it's own decoration. Often used to decorate cookies.

I like to use this buttercream recipe most often, even when using it as the finish on a buttercream cake. It has no shortening in it which means it won't be entirely "white".  It will be more of a cream color.  This recipe works great as the layer of icing underneath fondant if you’re trying to achieve sharp edges, because it will harden when you chill your cake before adding your layer of fondant.

This is the recipe I use to get the drippy effect on top of my cakes!
