  1. Hi Sean/Ina,

    This looks yummy. Can I convert this into a larger cake may be 10″ …if yes could u give me the measure for ingredients accordingly.
    Also if I have any balance ganache how long can it stay in the fridge?Does it hv any other utility besides using it as a frosting?
    Can it be consumed as mousse?

    • Double the quantity for the Eggless Chocolate Muffins / Cupcakes and use. You can make the same amount of ganache and layer the cake with it. The ganache can stay good for a long time in the refrigerator. Only bring to room temperature before using it. You can spread it on biscuit or on bread and eat it. It is too rich to be consumed as a mousse.
