Autumn is upon us. Well, for those of us in the northern hemisphere anyway.
This is my favorite time of year. The weather changes in the best possible way and the food reflects these changes. However, there is one thing about Autumn that is disheartening to me: why do the seasonal flavors seem to focus on pumpkin??? The season has so much more to offer our palates but we’ve allowed ourselves to be lulled by this over-hyped flavor. It’s time for this to stop.
February is here. This means random snow, random sunshine, Valentine's Day, and the ultimate: my birthday.
Yes, it is a magical month.
I decided this year's cake had to be just as magical. Also, it needed to be miniature for what I had in store. Yep, the ganache was about to drop in my kitchen!
Recent trends in cake have shown a drippy styling of ganche over buttercream. I envision just the ganche, no buttercream, poured over a beautiful chocolate cake. This would be a lovely new version of the naked cakes that I love.
Let me say again, I love naked cakes. Honestly, anything nude goes as far as I’m concerned...
