Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
Very easy and very good. I heated the cream and then added the chocolate to the cream in the pan as instructed by another recipe. Just pour chocolate into cream, shake the pan to cover chocolate and stir after a minute or two. I also added 1-2 tablespoons of butter for the shine it gives. I did not add the rum, but would certainly consider it in the future.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
I made this for Christmas and it was delicious. I used white chocolate ganache and raspberry filling between the layers and I poured a semisweet chocolate ganache over the top layer. Three fresh raspberries garnished the top. My stepson gave it 2 thumbs up. I had it for breakfast the day after Christmas. I did have a challenge getting the layers out of the pans. Two of the 3 pans had a lever that loosens the cake sides & bottoms. One of these layers cracked when I tipped the pan onto my hand to remove it. I had to place the rack over the top of the pan and flip it to get it out safely. The layer in the pan without the lever stuck to the bottom of the pan. I scraped the stuck part and pieced it back onto the layer. The recipe only says to grease the pan. Next time, I will dust with cocoa as well. I just watched the video and it says to cool the cake completely before removing from the pan. The recipe doesn't say this and I cooled 15 minutes (like many cake mixes instruct). Perhaps this is why I had the cracking, but I don't think this caused the sticking.
