hector’s take for ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: White Velvet Cupcakes (page 298), frosted with milk chocolate ganache
for ultimate ganache consistency, let is slowly cool at room temperature, overnight. refrigerate for a couple of days (covered). bring it to room temperature until it reaches 70 oF. stir lightly, and pipe away!
i am using a large open star piping tip, at a 90 degree angle, piping two stars: one directly on top of another. release pressure prior lifting the piping bag, to create hollow centers, flowers alike.
