@ksus07:  I would say not really. Ganache is just cream and chocolate and while you can whip it to an extent and do some piping and stuff with it it’s definitely not the same to deal with as buttercream. What sort of designs are you interested in? You could ‘texture’ ganache if your just after that rustic buttercream look that seems to be popular now. Do you have any pictures? Also, are you thinking white or dark choc ganache. Just be aware that white choc ganache has a yellowy appearance unless a whitener is added.

@ksus07:  you can do a lot more designs with buttercresm bc the consistency between the two are so different. What exactly are you looking to create?

@ksus07:  hi, the top one is ganache, second one could be achieved with ganache but the third one you couldn’t do. You really need royal icing to achieve very fine piping like that.
