Ganache is a crucial part of cake decorating, but we find that some people are a little scared to use it. In this course from our completely free series of cake decorating lessons, Paul goes into fantastic detail on using ganache for cake decorating. Once you start using this delicious and versatile ingredient in your cakes, you'll never go back!

We also have a fantastic blog post on ganache from my resident cake hero, Made it with Love.
