Just joined today in the hope that I will be able to find some help.  I'm sure I will as, whilst looking for answers to my question I've already learnt so much.  I have already found a number of threads on this topic but none seem to answer my questions definitively.  So here goes...


I'm looking for a chocolate ganache recipe BUT it needs to be one that sets hard and is applied by a palette knife rather than one that you pour over the top of the cake.  I need it to set hard so that I can then cover the cakes with sugar paste.  I've tried making it before with chocolate buttons ( I won't be trying that in a rush again but someone did recommend I use them) and although it was of a fairly stiff consistency it didn't set hard enough for me to be able to use sugar paste on top of afterwards.


Also, I need to know what sort of quantities I would need to fill and cover two 12" cakes, each being 3" deep. 

Thanks in advance for your advice.
