Big n small

Got a request to make THE Chocolate Cake in larger size..as always, I forgot to weight the cake but I estimated the large one is around 2 kilos and the smaller or regular sized cake is around a kilo..

Here we have the cakes ready for decoration

image

For the large cake I didn’t do much..because its owner want it to be plain..but I just have to add a bit of color to it..hehe..I feel red is always great looking againts black πŸ˜‰

image

And for the regular sized cake, it was requsted to be decorated with “lotsa love” as I did on the red velvet cheesecake earlier

image

And a lot of words too..LOL

To get a smooth border of red velvet cake crumbs, i press them gently towards the cake using a butter knife

matte ganche

i did the usual pour ganache on cake method..but i wanted a matte finish because i think it would look better with the flowers later..

ganache as we all know has a smooth glossy effect if executed properly (hehe)..my kitchen project today was getting a matte effect on the ganache..so, it was experimenting time πŸ˜‰ i used a spatula dunked into warm water (and wiped dry) to smooth out the ganache and wallah..here’s my ganached cake with the matte finish i wanted πŸ˜‰

topped with some piped roses on top..and here we have a cake fit fot hantaran πŸ˜‰
