Hi Debibon

Are you filling the cake with ganache as well? If you’re just covering try 400g chocolate 200ml double cream. You’ll probably have some left over, if you do, ganache freezes very well and can be used on another cake later.

Hi Debibon

You can add a bit more chocolate if you want, but if you have 40% coco it should be ok. Beligium choc is good, depends how much it is. I have no problems with Asda, Lidle or the Tesco own brands, and of course they’re cheaper too. My motto with milk chocolate is to buy the one you like eating. If you’re worried about the strength of the ganache, adding some dark to it won’t change the taste that much, so you could add 100g dark and the rest milk. Filling with butter cream is fine, I’d advise you pop the cake in the fridge for a while so the BC sets a little, it makes ganaching easier, BC tends to slide around a bit. You won’t have any problems, it’ll be fine! x
