    Can I delete my comments? Why is this system either deleting most of what I've written or starring words? Last time I comment on here! The first starred word was *****, the second one was ****** it.

    I can see why others have complained about it being too runny, ganache is usually 50% for each ingredient. This calls for 10 oz. too much *****. Search online to see how other bakers are ****** it. Kraft, what happened to the rest of my previous review?
