i am making a ganache filling for a cake and was wondering if i should use the whipped ganache or the chocolate ganache recipe 1? i don't really know much about ganache (except that its chocoalte and delicious!) but any help on what kind of ganache to use would help a lot!! thanks so much!
It depends what consistency you're looking for.
Whipped ganache is my preference for filling a cake, because it's light like chocolate whipped cream.
Regular ganache, while delicious as a topping, I use this for my double chocolate cakes to ice the cake, but as a filling it will harden to almost like a truffle center. You may want this consistency, if so go with the regular ganache.
thank you! im gonna go with the whipped :p
