Just ganached

This was my first proper attempt at ganaching a cake. I had a big fear of this and attempted couple of times but gave up and just poured the chocolate on top.
I am really pleased of how it turned up and couldn’t have done it without the encouragement from my dear friend Claire from ’’Claire’s sweets and treats’’ and all my followers on facebook.
I also would have been lost without these great tutorials which helped me lots so I want to say big Thank you to these great individuals: Inspired by Michelle, Three little blackbirds and Torta Couture.
Thank you all so much for helping me ganache this cake. xxx

Fantastic!! so perfect! well done! thank you for all the info, don’t think i could ever get clean edges as good as you have! beautiful cake and rose! :-)

great job!

StarryDelights ...

thank you Elli
I think the clean edges is due to the acrylic boards. Compared to cards they are much sharper :) This great tip to use acrylic boards was from Torta Couture (and there is less wastage as you can reuse them :)xx
