I also made my brothers birthday cake as it is his birthday tomorrow. I must say it looks rather good. But when I woke up this morning some of the ganache has gone a light brown colour Damn humidity I am guessing as I have made this ganache before and that has never happened. Lucky I got photos of that before it turned bad. It is still edible. It is only my second decorated cake so I feel good about it anyway.
I got asked for chocolate so chocolate he got, it is a mud cake with chocolate butter cream then layered with chocolate fondant with a chocolate ganache. I also made fudge and put them in a mould and poured chocolate on top. Also the big pieces of chocolate is fudge dipped in you guessed it chocolate.
I thought I should write happy birthday as well, so he knows I made it for this birthday and not our christmas get together.
I cut out fondant hearts and piped ganache around the edge.
Anyway that is about it. Christmas comes early tomorrow, yum good food and family laughs.
