Hi everyone,
I am newbie at cake decorating ...I want to try using ganache....

The ratio is different for white chocolate. White chocolate uses nearly double the chocolate to cream.

thanks for the tips....
I would like to know if you can use regular chocolate ganache under butter cream for cakes other than chocolate cakes?
