White Chocolate Ganache
200g Green and Blacks white chocolate
100g double cream
Break up the chocolate and put in a glass bowl. Melt the white chocolate. Heat the cream in a saucepan until it just begins to boil. Pour the cream on to the white chocolate and mix until completely combined. Leave to cool.
White Chocolate Buttercream
250g icing sugar
80g unsalted butter
5 big spoonfuls of the white chocolate ganache
Beat the icing sugar, butter and milk together until smooth. Stir in the white chocolate ganache. The ganache should be soft or room temperature. If it’s been in the fridge and firmer than the buttercream, heat for a few seconds until it is the same consistency.
