Chocolate Fudge Cake
Peppermint Fudge Cake from here. Yumm... I made it for my mom's birthday last Saturday and it was delicious. It took a while to make though between waiting for the ganache to set up and waiting for the White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse to set up. Waiting for the cake to bake? Eh, not so bad. I did make the three layers though and one of them stuck to the pan and broke so I couldn't use it. I ended up cutting my two remaining layers into two layers so I ended up with four layers :). Then I filled it with the White Chocolate Peppermint Mousse deliciousness. It was definitely worth making but it's a project. I had the extra layer of cake along with some ganache left so I decided to make Cake Balls. I crumbled up the cake into a bowl and mixed in maybe 1/2 cup of warm ganache then put it in the refrigerator to set up. I took it out, rolled it into balls and dipped it in semi-sweet chocolate. This is an excellent use of extra cake and ganache in my opinion. They are so addictive I'm glad I don't have that many. It was a quick dipping job because I'm not taking these anywhere so they don't have to be pretty.
