Humzoo CakeDenny may remember this one--or maybe not. I remember I had to use the microwave to soften the ganache to keep it from firming up too fast. Was that only a few months back? Today it is so hot in the house--I can't keep it on the cake. Slowly and carefully I placed it on the cake and caught the chocolate flood (isn't that a nice visual!) and worked it into the rest of the frosting.
The cake is nearly DBCC (Death By Chocolate Cake) because of the amount of chocolate in the cake, truffle filling and chocolate ganache frosting. To give it some complexity (hard to be complex with one flavor), I try to use various chocolates in the assembly. This time, I added shaved milk chocolate to the top of the truffle filling as well as some shaved and grated milk, dark and white chocolate on the top of the cake.
Maybe Denny (and everyone else) will recognize it better this way.
Hope Shiranda likes it and will enjoy the send-off treat for her move to Dallas. One of the "official" Humzoo cakes that tastes like the internet.
