Everyone here hs been soo helpful so I am asking yet another question.
I want to make my sister a cake for mothers day.She is a major chocolate lover so I am looking for chocolate cake ideas. It will be small like 6 inch 3-4 layers possibly so I need to pack in the flavor!
Try adding some whipped ganache as the filling. I just recently knew about it.
I always use this receipe (except I also add a small chocolate pudding), it's great: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sandys-Chocolate-Cake/Detail.aspx
I use ganache as the filling and as the frosting on the outside. delish and so easy
thanks some great ideas. I havent tried ganache yet... is it difficult to work with?
ganache is simple to make and easy to work with, I use 1 part heavy cream to 2 parts chocolate, warm in a pot on stove, stir til smooth. take off stove and let cool to desired consistency.
Wow that seems simple enough. I hope it helps pack in the taste. I planned on making a chocolate fondant so to cover the ganache with that will boost the flavor. CHOCOLATE OVERLOAD!
and the good thing about ganache is that it is not so sweet like a frosting. To speed up the thickening of the ganache, you can put it in the refrigerator (store leftover ganache there too) just whip it up if it gets too thick
Can ganache be frozen? after its on a cake?
I have never frozen it so I don't know the answer. Anyone?
