I knocked off a star because I had to tweak the technique a bit to get it to come out right. I brought the butter and heavy cream to a boil, then took it off the heat and added the chocolate, letting the heat from the cream melt the chocolate gently, and then added Kaluha instead of brandy. Since I was frosting a layer cake, I let the ganache cool, then refrigerated it. Then I whipped it in my stand mixer to make a light, fluffy frosting. Then I didn't have enough to cover my cake! I had to make a second batch, but didn't have time to cool it again, so I used the fluffy frosting to fill the middle of the cake, the poured the warm ganache over the whole thing. The good news is after all that work, it turned out DELICIOUS.
