I’m moving to London for good, and unsurprising, that means I’m spending most of my summer seeing family. Nothing says “let’s all get together one last time because this could be it for years to come” than a birthday party celebrating 6 birthdays (I was originally told 5 so that’s why the cake says x5)! All the summer birthdays plus both of my parents all done in one shot. I, of course, was placed in charge of dessert.
This chocolate cake and ganache RECIPE is now my favourite of ALL TIME. I am not exaggerating one bit. I will make this cake until the day I day. I made mine with a slightly sour cream cheese filling that went perfectly with the extra dark cake and ganache. Life. Changing.
*** Please excuse my horrible piping on the cake. I ended up having to use my cousin’s piping tips, and I have no idea where they came from. I think they’re meant to be super child friendly, but they don’t produce the best control of designs. ***
The fruit tart was whipped up with a generic pastry crust and filled with some leftover lemon curd that went a long way when folded with whipped cream. The last part was just arranging the berries on top! Su-per simple. I didn’t have anything to glaze the fruits but was too exhausted to worry about it.
I hope you guys are enjoying your last bits of summer! If not, go out and find out!
