Wow, I didn't realized I hadn't updated in a while. I never posted the cake I made for my niece's birthday! I can't believe that. So here's her fairytale castle cake:
She loved it. We all ate tons of cake and there was plenty leftover!
Yesterday, for St. Patrick's Day, I made a nice chocolate stout cake using some oatmeal stout from Trader Joe's. I poured over it with chocolate ganache.
It came out lovely and delicious! It had a smooth, rich texture. I made the ganache from 90% dark chocolate, 77% dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate. It was almost too rich and I couldn't even finish the piece I cut myself. It's okay though, I have more friends willing to help out! ;)
