    I made a hazelnut brown butter cake as part of my wedding cake trial. I used a chocolate ganache inside and a buttercream outside. They both went well together but the ganache was heavenly – the only issue was that it really wouldn’t work for an outer frosting. I ended up using a buttercream “barrier” to make sure it wouldn’t leak over the sides if the kitchen got really warm, and it worked perfectly! 

    ETA: If your cake is an actual fruit cake, I couldn’t quite picture buttercream or chocolate ganache with it… what is it usually served with?
