One of my colleague is leaving us and her last day is Friday. She told me she likes chocolate cake so I have finally settled with a chocolate fudge cake for her as a farewell gift from me. Wish you all the best C, in whatever you may be embarking on.
I managed to frost one whole cake plus two small cupcakes with the ganache that I did with some balance ganache left.
From trimming of the cake, I have collected a fair bit of chcolate cake. In order not to waste the cake, I did some chocolate fudge balls with the balance ganache and then coated each ball with some chopped toasted almond.
What I did was to crush up the cake into the balance ganache and using a spoon, I mixed them together. Leave the mixture into the fridge to harden a little. In the meantime, I toasted some whole almond at 180C for 10 mins and after cooling them I chopped them up. Take out the cake mixture and roll into small balls and roll them over the chopped almond to coat them well. Place into small paper cups.
Don't they look a bit like Rocher?
