Ganache Cake

Here's a little cake I made awhile ago. I covered the cake in ganache. Ganache is basically melted chocolate and cream. So freaking good. I think I'm going to start covering everything I eat in ganache. But then I'd have to ride more than one big bike ride a year and I'm not interested in that.

So back to the cake. It's covered in ganache then I used some leftover fondant to make polka dots and a bow. I always have left over fondant. If you store it in something airtight it can last for a month or so.

If you choose to mix ganache and fondant be careful. Ganache is very runny and messy. Once you place your fondant on the cake that's were it will have to stay. No second guessing yourself with the method. If you can call it a method.
