Chocolate Cake Pop


Whenever I do a decorated cake, in this case my girl’s tiered cake, I always got a lot of leftover cake and frosting. The best way to consume them is the make cake pops and to share with class…IMG_8934IMG_8937

Tiered Chocolate Cake with Fondant


As my girl is not a dessert fan and only likes a very limited type of cakes, she has requested for a chocolate cake that she could eat for her birthday party…meaning both the cake and the frosting made with chocolate.

Thanks to her request, I found out that chocolate ganache is best as frosting underneath fondant so here is my first chocolate ganache chocolate cake…IMG_8884

I didn’t plan well in advance so did not have enough time for the ganache to set and for the frosted cake to set. I read from a lot of posts on the web saying it is not necessary to put ganache covered cake in the fridge but given the hot weather in Singapore, I did not dare to leave it out.

Since I did not have enough time for the ganache to harden, I couldn’t get the very sharp edges after covering with fondant.  But I was happy anyway.

Another problem I had was the fondant was tearing apart and had cracks.  I wonder if I knead and rolled for too long and dried out the fondant.  Need to experiment again.  IMG_8888 IMG_8890 IMG_8893
