i made this cake for my friend janine. i made a double layer chocolate cake and added minced candied ginger and chocolate chips to the batter and subbed amaretto for the vanilla extract.
it's frosted with a kreamcheeze buttercream with more candied ginger mixed in and topped with chocolate ganache. after i frosted the cake with the kreamcheeze frosting, i chilled it. then i formed a collar with tin foil and placed it around the cake to make a form for the ganache. i poured th ganache in, let in chill and then removed the tin foil. no drips! notice the layer of frosting under the ganache on top?
