Tonight for the first time I used ganache under my fondant. I have never been more pleased with smoothness of a cake. My daughter actually said is that a real cake. It was so easy and just makes such a difference. I dont know if I can use it on all my cakes due to the price but for cakes that really dont have alot of decorations to hide the imperfections i am going to use it for sure.

It was also my first attempt at quilting and I am alse proud of that.

The photos are in my album the cake with the pink roses.

Below is the link all about it. Grab some coffee it is 30 + pages but it is such good info.

I made white chocolate and the ratio is 3 parts white choc to 1 part heavy cream(dark chocolate is 2:1) . Heat the milk and then stir in the chocolate. I mixed it in a bowl for a few and then into my kitchen aid it went. I let it sit for 24 hrs and just used it like buttercream. What is great about it is once it is set you can use a spatula or bench scrapper dipped in hot water and then dried. It melted the ganache so you can smooth it. I was very pleased. My only concerns tomorrow will be the heat so I will update that tomorrow.
