Just to be like the sun

Change of Mind

In my mind, Actually I planned together with my niece to made a birthday cake for her elder sister, what I want to do is a fondant cake.

Yesterday, went to three shops to source for my supplies, manage to get what I want, and was too lazy to go the Sunlik for my Valhorna Chocolates, just need to do with the belgium chocolates that I have in hand...

Late in the evening, I baked two cakes, dark chocolate mudcaake and white chocolate mud cake.

Today assemble the 2 types of cakes together with ganache, don't know whether it's the effect of the weather, hot and warm, the ganache is hard to handle, keep on putting in the fridge to cool and harden. Seeing that the ganache is quick to be soften in room temperature today, decide not to do fondant, just in case, my nieces are not at home early. I just pipe the edge and put some chocolate pearls.

Delivered the cake to their house, as what I expect, they are not at home, wherelse, one of them suppose to help me, said that she's busy, just as I expected. Hope they like the cake :)
