Chocolate Ganache Cake With Sugared Pears & Eucalyptus

I loved this Martha Stewart design! The cake was a 4", 6", 8" and 10" square combo of Dark Chocolate cake filled with Rasperry Chocolate Whipped Ganache and iced in smooth Chocolate Whipped Ganache.

My co-worker friend iced the cake because she is a pro at squares and whipped ganache...and I am not!

The pears were sugared with egg whites and superfine (jelly sugar) the night before so they crusted perfectly.

I love the look, but summer is not the season for this. Not for warm weather...too scary!

Here is the recipe: 1 pound of really nice semi-sweet chocolate (Callebaut, Lindt, etc.) + 1 litre of 35% whipping cream. Scald cream and add to finely chopped choc. Cool overnight in fridge. Whisk SLOWLY with mixer until thick like whipped cream...NOT TOO STIFF OF IT BECOMES WET, GRAINY & RUINED. It is hard to judge, so practice first or it costs too much $$ to make a mistake!
