Whoa…. now THAT’S a cake! How wonderful – I’m sure it’s just as rich and decadent as the tart – it’s a beaut!

Hi Mdm Chow, your this cake looks sinfully delicious….and looking at the well taken pic, I’m sure it just melts in the mouth….
and the pure ecstasy of that chocolate making the mouth hum, ‘hmmmmmm’ and eyes rolliong upwards.
Outstanding! Can see you have a Black Belt in baking.
Have fun and keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.

Good call! I’m with you, ganache goes much better with cake.

It looks sinfully good.

Beautiful cake! The ganache would be good on anything. Nice job.

Sure glad I read this. I was fixing to made chocolate ganache to spread on 3 layers but sounds like that may be too much. Rethinking my plan.

Too rich?? Is there such a thing?

I’m with Master Chow. I can eat cake all of the time. Chocolate!!! Yes!! My favorite!

Chocolate cake is my all time favorite…can I have a piece, please? Great tip about putting the wax paper strips under the foil base…ganache seems to require the strips and that cake seems to be delicate, just what a chocolate cake should be. So beautiful with the rose, too!

HA! Thank you for stopping by! Yes, it was very rich; I froze the leftovers and we sliced them very thin and ate them in their still frozen state. Delicious!
