    I've made ganache as a coating for strawberries and cakes but have seen it in recipes as a filling for cheesecake, etc. Does anyone know the specifics for making this? Is it the same as a coating? I use equal amounts of chocolate and heavy cream.

    Equal ratios of chocolate and cream is right. You can even add some type of liqueur to give it a subtle flavor. You can whip it up in a mixer so it's lighter or use it straight up, only wait for it to set up a bit so it doesn't flow all over your cake.
