Hi..I'm not sure if this has been asked before...but here we go.
I want to make a sweet tasting cake for my dad's 72 birthday (he has a HUGE sweet tooth!) I plan to make a mocha cake, w/b.c, mmf and then add poured chocolate ganache on top. Will ganache stick to mmf okay? I've never attempted to make ganache before so I don't really know what I'm getting myself into..
I have a cake in my gallery that is ganache poured on top of fondant. Worked great! This is the ganache recipe I used:
8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Place the chopped chocolate in a medium sized bowl. Set aside. Heat the cream and butter in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Stir with a whisk until smooth.
Wait until the chocolate is room temp but still liquid, it should be very thick. The pour on the center of the cake slowly. I let it drip naturally down the sides, added almond slivers and chocolate curls to the top, and then immediatly put it in the refridgerator.
It was a huge hit!
Thanks..that sounds sooooooo yummy! Can't wait to try it...
