Hey Yolanda! I am going to make this cake and I was wondering if I would need to alter the recipe because I am baking it in an 8 inch round pan that is 1.5 inches high. Thanks!

Hello! I was wondering when you start adding your toppings on? Do you wait for the ganache to harden in the fridge or add the chocolate shards when the ganache is still wet? Thank you so much! :)

Yolanda, love your channel. I have a question about utilizing a substitution for the chocolate ganache’. Do you think melted white almond bark tinted with gel paste would work? I have a whole family that is allergic to chocolate, so it is a definite no-no around here. Thanks for you time!

Hey Yolanda, I wanted to see how I would need to alter the recipe for baking my cakes in 8 inch pans from the dollar store. Please help!
