You can whip it and make it fluffier...

hi Jaimeann,

thank you for replying , I've done that and it still sets hard , just like when you use it as a covering for fondant .

So you know its just easier if I dont use it as a filling right thumbsdown.gif

just can't figure it out

last week I made a cake covered with ganache and i didnt want to make something else for a filling so what i did was, I used a little of vanilla buttercream that i had left from another cake and i mixed like half ganache and half buttercream and it was pretty good, so may be if you mix a little buttercream to your ganache it wont get hard. Good luck.

You need to change the qty of choc and cream, I was having the same trouble as you till I tried, 12oz choc and 2 cups cream, it was alot softer, I whip mine to make it fluffy and sometimes I even add buttercream. HTH
