I'm going to be making a cake for a baby shower and wanted to drizzle pink ganache down the sides of a round, white cake.  Can you use the Wilton Candy discs to melt instead of white chocolate?  If so, then I can just buy the pink ones and not worry about trying to tint it to a color that I want.  I wasn't sure if it would turn out the same consistency or not.

You CAN. Consistency wise it won't much difference. Taste wise it will. I don't like the taste of Wilton Candy Melts. If you are going to make a ganache for a cake, I really suggest a good quality chocolate.

AGoogle "does anyone else hate wilton candy melts cake central" That aside, coloring white chocolate ganache is very simple. I would start by adding a little bit of food coloring with a toothpick and gradually build up to the shade you want. With color you can always add more, but you can't take it away.
