Be inspired by ♥ Ganache

I bake a cake nearly every week – as you can see by my blueberry cake recipe and my cinnamon cake recipe. My cakes need a sugar free icing and so I made ganache. Ganache is a flavoured cream made with chocolate and fresh cream, sometimes with butter added. It is used to decorate desserts, to fill cakes or sweets and to make truffles or petits fours. It was created in Paris in about 1850 at the Pâtisseri Siraudin (Larousse Gastronomique)
