Set bowl on top of saucepan with an inch or so of simmering water
Stir ganache gently until chocolate is completely melted and ganache is silky smooth
Use immediately for a chocolate drip cake or let cool until the same consistency as peanut butter for coating a cake for fondant
Double wrap leftovers in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator
This is my favorite chocolate to cream ratio for coating a cake. Using a double boiler method makes the ganache turn out perfectly every time. Leftovers can be softened for coating another cake by using 5-10 second bursts in the microwave.
