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…
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.
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.
