the use of good quality chocolate will make ganache more shiny. Ganache has a sweet and savory taste and gives a shiny brown effect on the surface of the cake coated by ganache to look more beautiful and delicious.
thus One of the secrets of a delicious cake or cupcake is the ganache. Unfortunately not everyone can make delicious ganache g. If it doesn’t make it right, it becomes bitter and damages the whole taste of the cake.
Ganache consists of a mixture of dark cooking chocolate and whiping cream liquid, ganache has a liquid texture so that ganache can cover the surface of the cake perfectly besides ganache is also soft when cold, unlike chocolate which will harden when cold so it is very soft when eaten.
below I give a recipe and some pictures, I hope you are inspired.
Cake Chocolate Ganache
- 9 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon dark rum optional
- Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, watching very carefully because if it boils for a few seconds, it will boil out of the pot. When the cream has come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate, and whisk until smooth. Stir in the rum if desired.
- Allow the ganache to cool slightly before pouring over a cake. Start at the center of the cake and work outward. For a fluffy frosting or chocolate filling, allow it to cool until thick, then whip with a whisk until light and fluffy.
