I love frosting cakes with Ganache.

The simplest  chocolate cake, can be turned into something special, just by covering it in Ganache.

How can anything covered in chocolate and cream be bad?

  4. We love love love ganache! Who knew something so fabulously delicious would be so stinkin’ easy to make. I often use coconut milk instead of the cream and it is wonderfully yummy!

  7. That does look absolutely lovely – ganache is wonderful – and so much easier than trying to frost the sides of cakes perfectly!

  8. Plan on making the chocolate raspberry cake this weekend for my sons birthday he is newly diagnosed with celiac s what can I use rather than the heavy cream or coconut milk for ganache. Evaporated milk.. looks awesome,,

    • I am not sure evaporated milk would work. Cream helps give this the texture. You could try a small batch though to see if it works. This cake would also be good with a regular frosting too.
