Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Chocolate mud cake sandwiched with dark chocolate ganache and decorated with cocoform roses in dark, milk and white chocolate. What are you most proud of? It was the first time I had worked with ganache, so I was very pleased with the outcome and that managed to get the top so smooth! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Working with chocolate requires cold hands and equipment, keep your cocoform in the fridge until you are ready to make your roses. White cocoform seems to melt quicker than dark, so work as quickly as you can. I had a bag of ice cubes in a bowl in order to cool my hands down as I worked.
