A cake is not a real cake until you layer it with some icing.

Basic Chocolate Ganache (3 ways)

Course: Cake
Cuisine: International

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces (1 1/2 cups) chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons flavored liqueur (optional)

Instructions

  • Place chopped chocolate and heavy cream in a heavy duty sauce pan. Heat until chocolate is melted and stirs until smooth and glossy.
  • Allow to cool before pouring over cakes and glaze. The longer the ganache is cooled, the thicker it will set.
  • Once cool and thick, this may be piped on cakes and cupcakes.
