Method For Chocolate Ganache Cake
Step 1:
Beat the butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs and beat well. Sift the flour and cocoa powder together and fold into the cake mixture. Fold it in the melted chocolate.

Step 2:
Pour into a lightly greased and base lined spring-form cake tin and smooth the top. The ideal size is 20 cm or 8 inch in diameter. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C or 350 F, for 40 minutes or until springy to the touch.
Cool for 5 minutes in the tin, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut the cold cake into two layers.

Step 3:
To make the ganache, place the cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil and keep stirring. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and combined. Pour into a bowl and whisk for about 5 minutes or until in become fluffy and cool.
Set aside one third of the ganache and use the rest to sandwich the cake together and spread smoothly and evenly over the top and sides of the cake.


Step 4:
Melt the cake covering and spread it over a large sheet of baking parchment. Cool until just set. Cut into strips a little wider than the height of the cake. Place the strips around edge of the cake and overlap them slightly.


Step 5:
Using a piping bag fitted with a fine tip, pipe the reserved ganache in tear drops or shells to cover the top of the cake. Chill for 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.
