I have downloaded the Ganacherator  from this site:


A lady called Jane (many thanks, Jane, for the Ganacherator!) created it and it is very useful for not only finding out how much ganache required for a square or round cake, but it also calculates how much cream and chocolate you need for that cake!

AQuestion I have about the spreadsheet - why are there two colums for the quantities? I put in info for 10 inch round 3 layer cake and the first column calculates 50 oz of chocolate but the second column says 11 oz. ?? Any one know why there are two values? I have never made a batch of ganache using 50 oz of chocolate!

First column is for round cakes, the second column is for square or rectangle cakes.
