I made ganache to fill cupcakes with, but I got the ratio wrong. I was looking for a softer ganache but used too much chocolate. It's already cooled. Can I heat up more cream and add to the ganache and let it set up again, or do I have to start from scratch?
You can either add more warmed cream or just microwave it in little blasts to get it softened again.
I need to actually thin it down instead of just warming it up so that it's the consistency I'm looking for once the cupcakes are filled. I'll try adding some more cream to it and see how it goes. I guess I can always make another batch and eat this one with a spoon if I have to!
Man, I hate it when that happens!
Yes, you can adjust the ratio now
Awesome! I really didn't want to have to start over. I love chocolate but eating a pound of ganache didn't seem like the best idea...
Good news! I heated up more cream and added it to the ganache. I had to heat the ganache in the microwave for several bursts, but it all came together wonderfully and was the right consistency! I didn't have to eat batch one with a spoon all by myself after all! LOL!
So glad was posted 5 years ago. Saved me today. I made white chocolate ganache to ice a cake in. I got the ratios right, 3:1, but was awfully thick to ice a cake with. Very grateful for this thread! You can always count on CC!
