I have a question about the recipe "Vegan Chocolate Layer Cake with Creamy Chocolate Filling" from Gena Hamshaw. Does the ganache taste like coconut because of the half-cup of coconut milk? Do we use full fat or low fat coconut milk? Lastly, can we sub soy or almond milk instead or would it not come out as creamy?

I made the ganache with lite coconut milk, and it turned out fine. It definitely tasted mostly of chocolate, not coconut. I found the ganache to be extremely runny at first, though it set up perfectly after being refrigerated overnight.
