The icing on the cake

I might be feeling smug about my Beef Wellington but not so when handling ganache.  Harriet’s 21st birthday cake tasted great but it was so hard to get the icing smooth.

I let the ganache cool down a bit because I thought it would easier to spread. Not so. It tasted delicious but didn’t look that flash.  Lots more to learn with this.

I used Martha Stewart’s Red Velvet cake recipe and highly recommend it. You cut into a deep rich red moist cake – it looks sensational. It has oodles of cochineal, or red food colouring, which gives it an amazing colour.  Here is the link to the recipe I used. http://www.marthastewart.com/316586/red-velvet-chocolate-cake
