It is a mixture of chocolate and cream that is melted together to make a smooth paste. It can then be piped and spread to decorate a cake. Flavour can be added to give it extra depth.

Chocolate butter cream

Ganache whipped up with butter to give it a nice light texture. If using white ganache colour can be added.

Italian meringue
