I am making a 10" round and a 8" round birthday cake for my 4 year old. I want to use ganache underneath the fondant. How much ganache do I need to make? Can anyone tell me how much cream and chocolate to use for these sizes? I want to use white chocolate. Is there any particular brand of white chocolate or cream that anyone can suggest?

Hi, The ratio for the white chocolate ganache is 1:3. For example, if you are using 100ml of cream, use 300g of chocolate. So I would think that it will be enough if you make it with 300ml of cream and 900g of choc.

I would use couvertures for ganache. Callebaut is quite good if you can buy that.
