Quick & Decadent Recipe: Death by Chocolate


Death by

This is a three layered cake, with whipped dark chocolate ganache in
the centre layered with sliced strawberries. On top, I poured over dark
chocolate ganache, piped some whipped chocolate ganache to hold the
ganache dipped strawberries… and I diced up a few strawberries to
throw around the base and the centre :D

I’ve been getting a few
requests for recipes, so here goes some pretty basic instruction on how
to do it…

Bake your favourite chocolate cake, enough to make 3
layers in a 9 inch, round cake pan. You can make it 2 layers if you
like :)
Slice up a lot of strawberries… I
don’t know exactly how many I used because it was such a long time ago,
but too many strawberries is never a problem, since they’re very nice
for snacking!
The outer layer of chocolate is simply ganache.
Ganache is melted chocolate mixed with whipping cream. The inner layer
of the cake is also made of the ganache, but I divided my recipe of
ganache into two bowls. I whipped one of the portions, and used that to
pipe around the cake as well as layer the strawberries on inside the
Assemble! You can see from the bottom right picture what
I’ve done. Cake, whipped ganache, strawberries, repeat!
I filled in
the sides that were exposed strawberry with some more whipped ganache so
that the ganache can pour over and spread evenly (or helped along with a
spatula!) any left over regular ganache was used to dip the
strawberries in. Note that the chocolate won’t fully set up and harden,
since it is not tempered chocolate. I piped some whipped ganache as a
border along the bottom of the cake and diced some strawberries to

and that’s the general gist of what I did… you can
find pretty good chocolate cake recipes in books, online, etc… and a
recipe for ganache can be easily found online. But if you want to whip
the ganache, you’re going to have to suck it up and use whipping cream!
