I'm about to try making my first "nice" cake ever lol. I have read ganache under fondant is a good place to start because it's a little more forgiving. Anyways..I have a few questions. :)
1. Do I *have* to have a glass mixing bowl? Would it be ok to use plastic (for the microwave) or stainless steel (if I do it on the stove top)? I want to get glass mixing bowls..just haven't been able to yet. :)
2. How much will I need to make? I used the "ganacherator" excel document that someone posted in these forums. It's saying for a 6" round cake stacked 2 high I need 18oz of dark chocolate and 9oz of cream. Does that seem right?
3. I'm having to go dairy free..would coconut creamer be ok? I saw some people suggest soy milk coffee creamer..so I thought coconut might be ok. :)
Thanks in advance!!
