About this deal
When I’m covering the whole top of the cake in the drip ganache, I like to do that first, then do the drips. Don’t add too much on top, just enough to cover the top of the cake in a thin layer – use an offset spatula to spread it just to the edges. Then use the squeeze bottle or a spoon to add your drips. The cream you need is known by different names in different countries. Here in NZ it’s just regular cream or whipping cream. In other countries, it may be known as heavy whipping cream, single cream or full cream. Basically, you need a pourable, unwhipped cream that is around 35% fat. yes, they're relatively expensive but they are really specialised colourings and the results are pretty amazing

Unlike standard gel colours, Colour Mill is an oil-based dye, allowing you to better colour buttercream, Swiss Meringue and even chocolate! The secret is in how the colour binds to butter, fat, and oil. My preferred whitener to use is Chefmaster ‘liqua-gel’ white food colour, which is titanium dioxide in a glycerine base, and it blends in easily into the ganache. It’s also very concentrated, so not much is needed to get a good result. Americolor “white-white” gel colour is another popular option. The Colour Mill white oil colouring isn’t quite as concentrated but is great for when you just need to lift the colour slightly.Colour Mill's unique blend actually loves the fats and oils in your baking and uses these oils to disperse the special formula colouring Also, take into account the temperature of your cake. If you chill your cakes, then your drip will set faster because your cake is cold. If your cake is at room temperature and the room is warm, it will take a while for your ganache to set, so your drip will drip further.

White Colour Mill is probably one of the only colourings that acts as a true icing whitener suitable for buttercream Colours will develop and deepen over time, so if possible colour your buttercream and allow it to sit overnight for super vibrant results. White food colouring is made using titanium dioxide, a widely used food additive used for whitening food. I personally prefer to use the smallest amount of whitener necessary to get an acceptable colour result, as using too much can make the texture of the ganache a little bit chalky.Please note: the Ganacherator will give you the amount of chocolate and cream that you will need to make your ganache, but it only gives a 3:1 ratio for white chocolate. In warm climates and during summer, you may need to increase the ratio of chocolate to 4:1 or higher to make sure the ganache sets firmly. For more info on ratios, see my ganache tutorial.
