Chocolate Decadence- Chocolate Ganache Cake

21 Aug

August 21st, 2011

I have been meaning to experiment with chocolate ganache on cupcakes or cakes since the only time I used ganache was for filling french macarons. It’s easy to make, and it tastes so good! So for my friend, Theresa’s early birthday celebration, I decided to go with a double layered chocolate cake glazed with a bittersweet chocolate ganache, which we surprised her with over dinner.  Since she’s a big chocolate fan, I thought the chocolate cake with the rich ganache was quite fitting. Everyone enjoyed the cake and Theresa loved the ganache!

On top of that, to play up the look and flavor of the cake, I drizzled homemade caramel sauce on top. I made the caramel sauce in advance and still have a lot left, which I’m sure I will use on cupcakes and ice cream in the near future.

Rich and creamy caramel sauce.

Happy Birthday, Theresa!
