Heavenly Cake - Chocolate Cake with Caramel Ganache


The ganache really stole the show with this cake.

Mis en place:

Dry ingredients and cocoa.

Before the eggs.

Ready to go in.

I'm really not sure what I did wrong here but the cakes crumb turned out very dense. I even measured the ingredients and everything. Maybe I did not bake it long enough.

Heat the sugar for the caramel.

Pour the cream etc.

What a fantastic ganache! I bet this would go well with a lot of other cakes. Really classic.


  1. Ooo.... I can't wait to try the caramel ganache. I love your confetti decoration - I bet the kids got a kick out of it.


    PS - dense or not, your layer cake looks wonderful!!

  2. I just finished doing the ganache and its sitting pretty doing its first hour time, then to wait for the rest of the 2 before I frost the cake that has been chilling in the refrigerator since last night... so far each of the components are smelling and looking great.. so if I go by your post, this is going to be a favorite of mine - stay tune!

  3. That looks super chocolaty, yum! I heard many good things about the ganache. Can't wait to try it!

  6. This looks great Mendy. I agree that the ganache was a hit. I thought the cake was rather ordinary
