A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make a birthday cake for a friend. His favorite flavors are ginger, pumpkin, and chocolate — in that order, so I wanted to make some sort of layer cake that incorporated these elements.
After an extensive Internet search, I couldn't find a recipe. There are tons of ginger chocolate desserts and lots of pumpkin chocolate confections, but nothing that combines them all.
Thus, I took matters into my own hands and created this gingerbread layer cake with pumpkin-spiced whipped cream and chocolate ganache drizzle. It's three different recipes that together, make one gorgeous and delicious cake.
The layers are moist, the filling pillowy, and the topping rich. It's a stunning and impressive cake full of holiday flavors, that I highly recommend. Everyone at the party loved it and your guests will too, so get the recipe.
A chocolate sauce made from a mixture of chocolate and cream, ganache may be used to fill a pastry, add a glossy glaze to a cake, or form the center of a traditional chocolate truffle. Ganache is typically created by pouring heated cream over chopped dark chocolate, then blending until smooth, although it may also be enhanced with liqueurs or extracts. Cream-to-chocolate ratios vary depending on the application; less cream results in a firmer ganache.
After an indulgent, romantic dinner, surprise your sweetie with a chocolate-strawberry treat. These individual cakes are easy to assemble and divine to eat. The batter requires no electronic mixer making this an ideal dessert for those who don't own one. After baking, the cooled cakes are topped with a layer of strawberry jam before being coated in chocolate ganache. A strawberry and chocolate-curl garnish is festive and uncomplicated. The best thing about this recipe is that it makes 12 cakes, so you and your honey can enjoy them all weekend long!
