Some were 1 piece and some 2 I like the 2 piece ones.
I have a idea for the body on the 2 piece ones ........ but you will have to wait to see.

White ganache cake

Posted by Darla

It was Chad's birthday. Bowbie and I decided to use white Ganache. My crumb coat had a few areas of the cake showing but covered, (remember we're still learning) and with white Ganache it has to be perfect! I personally think it turned out ..ok.. he wanted a white cake and white is what he got white cake with butter cream frosting and white choc Ganache. Bowbie did the fine details and the choc curls on top. The cake was very moist and rich and he loved it, girlie looking and all. Happy Birthday Chad your a good sport.

My mom and I put this mouth watering yum-o DEATH BY CHOCOLATE cake together for our Trav. This cake is a perfect mixture of moist Orange Dreamsicle and rich Chocolate cake with a fudgey Chocolate ganache covering. The filling of this most delicious cake is a trade off between a fluffy Orange dreamsicle frosting and that fantastic Chocolate ganache….Pure delight in a bite!!!! The final decoration is cascading chocolate maple leaves with ganache piping…
