I am planning to make a death by chocolate cake. I would like some input on how to arrange the various chocolate elements. I am planning on using chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse, fudge frosting and buttercream. I was thinking of something like this: cake, ganache, cake, mousse, cake, ganache, cake, cover all in fudge frosting and top with either chocolate buttercream roses or mini chocolate chips. I would like some ideas on what the inner layers and outer covering should be. For instance should I switch out the ganache to be the outer covering and put the fudge frosting on the inside? Any suggestions would be wonderful.

I saw this one a few weeks ago. I haven't tried it yet. It's called tower of death by Crumb Boss.

You might consider switching the ganache and fudge frosting. Whichever is heavier (or stiffer, maybe is a better word) is what I'd put outside. Sounds Delicious!

I did see the one from Crumb Boss. It sounded delicious but I wanted to stick more to everything chocolate. I was thinking of pouring the ganache over the outside like she did. It would be a nice smooth finish and easy to achieve. I will post the recipes I used when it's all done and I know how it turns out.
