Isn't an almond joy cake coconut cake with dark ganache?

 

Use a standard chocolate ganache that is 2 part by weight of dark chocolate and 1 part by weight of whipping cream (35% BF).  Add a little unsalted butter ( 1-2 ounces per pound of chocoalte) to allow this to be poured over the cake.

 

Fill your cake with white buttercream (or whatever).  Use the warm chocolate ganache to crumb coat. Let that set a t room temp for a half hour, and then pour the rest of the ganache on with the cake sitting on a rack.  You can reuse the drips--just heat them carefully over warm water.

Coconut ganache: You will need to find an Asian grocery store or online source.  Get real Thai style coconut milk that is used for cooking. I prefer Taste of Thai brand if I can't find Grace brand or Golden Rooster brand.

 

Chill the 15 ounce can before opening it.  Pour off the clear liquid and use the cup or so of white part like "cream" in a ganache recipe with white chocolate.  Save the clear liquid to adjust consistency if you want to pour the ganache--this will depend on the exact brand of coconut milk you buy.

 

You will also need to add some coconut flavour.  LorAnn is best (concentrated) but McCormicks is OK for taste (watery, need to ad a lot more of it).
