Also, please excuse the echo during the beginning and end of the video. I just moved into a new studio and am working on reducing the echo in the background! 🙂

Ganache quantities for covering a 6 inch 2 layer cake (increase the quantity for larger cakes):
White chocolate ganache (3:1 ratio):
– 600g white chocolate
– 200ml of heavy cream
– Gel food colouring of choice for colouring
In the video, I used about a 1/3rd of the quantity above for the crumb coat of my cake, and 2/3rds for the outer green/blue layer.
Dark chocolate ganache (1:1 ratio):
– 400g dark chocolate (50%). The darker chocolate you use, the more cream you will need to add.
– 400ml of heavy cream
