Excellent! Definitely takes a little experience if you've not baked much. I followed the advice of some other posters to ensure success. I almost forgot to add the boiling water which would have been tragic! I had no problems with the batter. I did have to cut the "hump" off of the top of my bottom layer. Definitely need to let the ganache harden a little for easier use. Seemed to make a ton of ganache, and I had to discard the rest. The buttercream frosting is to die for! I had to add additional cream though because my mixer couldn't handle the thickness. Also, for the middle, put the buttercream frosting on first, then the ganache, because the buttercream won't spread over ganache. I also used piping to decorate. I had to keep adding cream to the frosting for piping consistency. I also have so much buttercream frosting left- not sure where the original baker used it all. Takes about 3 hours to make, but well worth the time. Sinfully delicious!!
