I am going to try using ganache under my fondant instead of BC since i have heard such great things about it, but i am curious as to what the most popular recipe is, in regards to taste and how easy it is to use.

thanks

Im curious to hear answers for your question too! I want to use chocolate ganache for a filling...YUM! I've never used it before either so I can't be of any help, sorry!

I use it all the time and I love it!!! Very VERY easy to make and use. For regular chocolate it is usually 2 parts chocolate to 1 part heavy whipping cream. (I use a little raspberry liqueur also) White chocolate is 3 parts chocolate to 1 part heavy whipping cream. The better the chocolate the better the ganache! icon_biggrin.gif

This is kind of long - and more information than you asked, but I found it very helpful before I started using ganache a lot. HTH

oh no! through all my quick skimming of the post I cant figure out if i need to let it "sit" over night to reach spreadable consistancy in the fridge or on the counter...its in a container on my counter as we speak lol HELP!!!

Yes, let it sit overnight to thicken up!

On the counter... if you put it in the fridge it will firm up to much and when you try to spread it on to the cake it will tear...
