Feels like I haven't made a decent set in flipping forever. I dunno, the last one was meh. OH WHATEVER.
This is again for two contests, but before I continue, I'd just like to give a shoutout to my lovely friend on here @anneliese-p, of whom I stole the poetry-thing at the side of the set idea from (sorry, but it always looks so nice!) Anneliese is also a fellow Whovian (OMIGOSH LAST EPISODE TONIGHT OMIGOSH DYING THREE MORE HOURS) and a lovely person who doesn't mind my rambling, so thanks dear! xx

FOR THE GANACHE...
~ 2 x 180g pkts good-quality white cooking chocolate, chopped

~ Remove from heat. Transfer to a medium heatproof bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
~ Use a balloon whisk to gently whisk in the egg.

~ Meanwhile, to make the white chocolate ganache, place the chocolate and cream in a medium heatproof bowl over a medium saucepan half-filled with simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn't touch the water). Use a metal spoon to stir occasionally until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
