Want to bake something sweet for your loved one on Valentine’s Day ?
Roses are red, chocolate is divine and hearts are pure romance, all the essentials to the perfect Valentine’s Day Mini Cake. These little gems are Devil’s food layers filled with raspberry cream and covered in glossy chocolate ganache. !!
Top the cream with another layer of cake. Cover the cake with plastic wrap and refrigerate while you make the ganache.
Add all the chopped chocolate, swirl the pot to make sure the chocolate is completely covered by the cream.
Let sit for about 3 minutes and then gently whisk until smooth.
Pour about 1 cup of the hot ganache into a shallow dish and refrigerate for 10 minutes or until slightly firm, but still spreadable.
Leave the remainder of the ganache in the pot to keep it pourable.
With a small spatula, spread the refrigerated ganache over the sides of the cakes. The goal is to fill the gap between the layers of cake and make them smooth.
We want a smooth surface so that when you pour the ganache over the cakes you will not have any bumps.
If your ganache starts to get too thick, return the pot to the stove and heat on very low heat, just for a few seconds.
Allow the cakes to set at room temperature for about 20 minutes. If you need to refrigerate them, they will lose their shine.
Once you return them to room temperature the shine will come back. You can find edible roses at some grocery stores.
♥♥ Happy ValentinesDay ♥♥
