Hi, bakers, I’ve been requested to fill a cake with a white chocolate buttercream filling. Whenever I ‘ve done a white chocolate ganache, I’ve used a 3:1 ratio – but since this is for a buttercream-type filling, I’m not sure of the ratio.

Satin Ice - 2 replies
Although I like the way the Wilton fondant covers the cake, I just purchased a large tub of Satin Ice. My question is this – does anyone have trouble with coverage when using Satin Ice?

Simple Syrup & Cakes - 2 replies
Hi, everybody, I normally use simple syrup on all of my cakes, but I always wonder if I put too much – which hasn’t been the case yet, but I still worry! I recently read in a post that the ratio should be 3-4 tbsp of simple syrup for every egg – in other words, if you use 3 eggs in your batter, you need b/w 9-12 tbsp of syru...
