Of course you’ve seen them around! Ganache drip cakes have been the 2015/2016 trend and I’m not seeing them go away anytime soon. The beauty with them is that they’re quick, effective and eye-catching.
Lots of people have their own way of perfecting this method, but I’ve made a quick video of my own including a recipe which would be enough for an 8″ round cake. My handy tool for both the drips and the top means no messy smears from a spatula and a perfectly level top.
An important step: chill your cake before dripping your ganache. I didn’t have room in my fridge to do this for the below cake, so my drips were slightly more drippy than I was going for, but the beauty of this method is that there is no right or wrong.
Americolor gel colouring – I used regal purple for the ganache, and soft pink for the buttercream
