It is running down the sides!! Help, please! 32 oz of whipping cream and 64 oz of semi sweet chips. Should I add more chips? What did I do wrong?

I think maybe it's the chips? I've always used good quality chocolate, made with cocoa butter. Most chips are made with palm kernel oil.

Maybe let it set a bit more. I always put the first coat on very thin and then it's easier to build up. HTH.

Did you use ultra pasteurized cream?

If you did it won't set up properly. You probably need to add more chocolate.

Wish I could give you a better answer, but I haven't figured out how to make ultra pasteurized cream work.

Screwing up all my recipes!

Just an idea, take paper towels to the sides and top edges of the cakes.

My cakes when greased properly to come out of the pan, can reject all icing because I might have over greased.

Ganache needs to set up overnight for best results. Glad it worked out.
