Dark Chocolate Ganache

Ganache is a glaze, sauce, or filling for pastries made from chocolate and cream. 

This Dark Chocolate Ganache can be use under Fondant. Once it sets, it holds the shape and form of the cake so the heavy fondant doesn’t weight it down the way Buttercream squishes out the bottom. This Ganache was made semi-sweet but you can add Sugar according to how sweet you like it. Enjoy! 

Dark Chocolate Ganache –


  • 350 grams Dark chocolate melts 
  • 200 ml Thickened/heavy/whipping cream 
  • 80 grams Butter

  4. Allow to sit at room temperature to cool down and place in an airtight container and store in the fridge.
