This tutorial is the technique that I came up with that made it easier for me to make sure that I got straight even sides and a completely flat top every time I ganached a cake. The technique I came up with is kind of a mix of the upside down method that everyone knows about and the technique used by Faye Cahill where she uses two boards (one on top and one on bottom) to help ganache her cakes. My technique as I say is a mix of both and hopefully you find it helpful. There are many way...
Hi everyone! I have worked with Modelling Chocolate (referred to as M/C throughout this article) many times over the past few months, trying to find the perfect recipe, and the best ways to use it.

I love chocolate and I love garlic, I’m sure I eat enough garlic for it to count as one of my 5 a day. Garlic would definitely be one of my desert island items. Speaking of desert/desserts (dyslexic joke), I thought would garlic and chocolate work together, you can buy chilli and chocolate and sea salt and chocolate so why not garlic? I googled chocolate and garlic recipes, and I am definitely not the first person to think of it. Lots of recipes and opinions. None of these recipes had man...
