Cake For Two
These little darlings are 4" vanilla layers cakes. They are both filled with butter cream as well as frosted with it. The dark one is chocolate (obviously) ganche which I spiked out with a spatula. The top of the white one is covered with white chocolate ganache. Okay, there is a story here. What a mess! First of all, I had cut the circles out of a sheet cake, stacked them and proceeded to frost them. They crumbled and stuck to the frosting, it was extremely messy. So I patched them and carefully applied the crumb coat and let it set in the frig. The second coat of frosting went on nicely, yay! But then, I applied the white chocolate ganache and it caused the butter cream to fall off. Maybe I did not let it cool enough. The dark chocolate ganache behaved so differently. So I removed it all, except from the top and reapplied the butter cream. I gave them to an old friend who thought they were beautiful. The third cake that is pictured is also a 4" vanilla layer cake with butter cream frosting. I covered it with a pourable fondant that was I tinted pink, VERY pink! I can't decide it I like it or not. what do you think?
