Upside Down Method for Ganaching

This tutorial will show you how I go about ganaching all my cakes…..this is how I do it…there are plenty of other ways that work as well as other tutorials showing a similar method…I make no claim to inventing this technique, and am just showing you how I get the cakes I make to look like this!!!

For a full tutorial with written instructions, please visit my facebook page and look under my photo albums.

Thanks for looking!


How much bigger ate your cake boards than the original cake?


Hi Gemma, I trim the cakes back so there’s about a 5mm gap to fill in!! S x

This is fabulous Sasha! Actually SEEING it makes a big difference….I’m a very visual learner haha! :)

One of these days I hope I get brave enough to try ganache and the upside down method. I’m always trying so hard to get sharper edges and it looks like this is the way to go. But how the heck will I flip a large cake? One day…looks great!
