Piping chocolate ganache?
When I make chocolate ganache, let it cool and then whip it for frosting, it DOES pipe but it's a tad too soft for my liking. I'd like it to be more of a piping buttercream consistency. Like on a scale of 1 to 10 where 1 = toothpaste and 10 = drywall spackle, ganache lands at a 3-4.; I'm looking to make it 4-6. Does anyone have any tips to firm up ganache slightly (short of refrigeration)?
Nana Lamb: ganache is just heavy whipping cream and unsweetened (or semi-sweet) cooking chocolate (like Baker's). There is no sugar in it. What about meringue powder?

beat in some more powdered sugar when you rebeat the ganache! It will get stiffer the more powder you beat into it.
