AHi everyone , i have to make a tall cake covered in fondant but i whant to cover it in ganache insted of B.C. But i really dont understand the amounts for the ganache to get thick. I made it yesterday ( twice ) and did not work :( How should i do this please help !
A[LIST=1] [*] [*] [*] [/LIST] Use this Ink and download the spreadsheet. You can plug in your cake size and it will tell you how much you need of everything. Awesome! http://cakecentral.com/t/741743/the-ganacherator
What ratios are you using? What kind of chocolate? I use 2 parts dark chocolate to 1 part cream. If using milk chocolate I use 3 parts chocolate to 1 part cream.
Asorry for my english... I used Nestle chocolate chips 2 cups ( i dont have a scale ) and 1 cup of heavy cream and it didn't settle :(
AInvest in a scale. Baking chips have additives that often make them unsuitable for ganache. Did you use baking chips?
dark chocolate is 3:1 ratio, white chocolate 2:1
AHow long did you let it sit for? I usually make it before I go to bed and when I wake up its usually ready to be spread. 8 hours or so. Just a thought.
AThanks for all the advice i would invest in a scale and try again ...thankS to all :)
