  1. Pour the double cream into a heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring the cream just to the boil – it should be bubbling gently all over. Take the pan off the heat.
  2. Pour in half the chocolate and stir until melted. Add the remaining chocolate in two batches. Gently stir until there are no visible lumps and the ganache is smooth and glossy.
  3. Pour the ganache into a clean bowl and set aside for at least an hour, until it is completely cool and has started to firm up a little. Now you can use it to decorate all your cakes and bakes!
