In an effort to make my life easier, I thought using chocolate ganache to decorate instead of rolling out a 3 foot wide piece of chocolate fondant to cover a 18" square x 6" high cake tier, would be better.
First, must do a test run, to make sure the gold luster dust will adhere to chocolate fondant. This is a test piece of chocolate ganache, spread out on wax paper and left in the fridge to harden slightly.
Spritz on a little Crisco cooking spray on the ganache and adhere the stencil to the ganache. Then spritz on a little more over the stencil. This will ensure a nice bond and prevent bleeding.
The finished result...
