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?

I use white choc ganache for vanilla sponge. But you can use for any cake. icon_smile.gif
