Followed this recipe EXACTLY. Made the pastry cream and decorations the day before. Cake was a hit. Lots of work and lots of steps but was loved by all my guests.
It doesn’t say in the ingredients how much butter to use but if you bake or cook then you should know that you have to read not only the ingredients but also the instructions before you start and if you do that then you would see that it says to use tablespoons
I would love to make this recipe!!! Looks and sounds relishes, but I too can’t decide how much butter to use in either the pastry cream that simply calls for 3 butter ( is it teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, pats, sticks ????) I don’t know. And again on the chocolate ganache it says 8 butter( 8 what?? Pats, teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, sticks ??) again I don’t know,. With things being so high these days I’m sure not going to experiment trying to decide which measurement was correct. Even though I’d probably use Tablespoons, just my guess. Correct and I’ll give it a go.
The ganache recipe here calls for "8 unsalted butter." 8 what? Tablespoons? Teaspoons? Ounces? Please hire a good copy editor. Your recipes leave out vital info like this far too often.
