Does anyone know how to calculate the amount of ganache required per cake? I have to make 6, 10, 12, 14" tiers but can't figure out how many batches of ganache are required for each cake. TIA.

I wish I could be more scientific for you, but, I would just figure out how much it takes to cover the 6", and start doubling from there as an estimate for each tier. You will have some leftover from each previous tier but then you want extra to pour it nicely. Thats going to be one expensive cake! But, yummy.....
