Okay, maybe not really a cake-urgency for you, but for me it is. I am a novice caker and haven't caked since a super simple cake at Easter after which I focused on cookies and then found out I was expecting my first so I've been focusing on other things.

Well, I've agreed to one last cake before the pans go into storage for a while and I swear, I read the instructions (this wasn't the first time I've made setting ganache but it's been months!) and I had my scale but pregnancy brain must have set in anyway and I realized that I did 16oz of cream to 36oz of w.chocolate. Except I didn't realize it until hours later when I went to bed! icon_cry.gif

Can I just melt another 12oz and add it in when I get home from work and pop it in the freezer for a while? Or do I need to start from scratch? Please help. I need this cake for early Saturday and I've barely started on the decorations.

Just add the extra chocolate. You will be fine.
