Hi All

Made this cake for my BIL's BDay yesterday. Caramel Mudcake with White Ganache (main cake) and Dark Chocolate Ganache for cuppies. All the coloured decos are piped chocolate.

Ange Very Happy

WOW!!!!! Vegiemite, that's a beautiful cake. Lucky BIL Smile love
How's the taste of the white ganache? Is it too sweet? i've done the dark chocolate ganance but yet to try the white.
Btw, how do you pipe the chocolate decors? Care to share?
Thanks.

Thanks for your comments Angel71.

I made the white ganache using sour cream instead of normal cream to offset the sweetness. Personally, I like the dark chocolate better.

As with pipping the chocolate decos, no special technique involved. Simply melt white chocolate (I use the microwave) and tint it to desired colour (using Wilton paste). Place chocolate into sandwich bag, nip a small corner off, and start pipping away. Mine are just loops of various height. From personal experience, do not using metal pipping tips as the chocolate hardens very quickly.

Cheers

Ange
