If you've ever come across the hashtag #cakesofinstagram (on instagram obvs) you may have noticed heaps of amazing cakes coming out of there with spectacular toppings upon toppings upon toppings (especially from bakers in Australia and South Africa)! Not just settling for a layer of buttercream frosting, these cakes are turning up the volume to eleven, turning plain cakes into something super-decadent by adding the most amazing toppings such as chocolate ganache, bark, truffles, lollipops, heck, we've even seen popcorn drizzled with caramel!! The possibilities are only as endless as your creativity!
Which brings us to this recipe! The folks at Ideas Magazine are sharing with us today their recipe for chocolate ganache and truffles using the same recipe (featured in their latest April issue) which gives these cakes that little something extra-special! Mixing cream and dark chocolate this smooth and glossy mixture is easy to make, and so easy to decorate. You can also make truffles out of ganache which they also explain in the tutorial below! The truffles are coated with ground almonds and gold cake sprinkles to suit the theme of this month's magazin, "gold". Who knew it was so easy! Article by Tani Kirsten and photo by Ed O'Riley.
