I started with one layer , using half of a cake recipe.
Ahead of time, I started heating cream with chocolate in it for the ganache pour. I made a very creamy concoction of about 1 cup cream to 4 or 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, heating in a bowl over water (double boiler) very slowly. I then added a little liqueur into the chocolate.
I spoon into the layers some yummy flavored liqueur. The liqueur options probably not a good idea for a kid’s cake. Furthermore, probably would be best to freeze the layers at this point, though I didn’t for this one, I wish I had.
I begin a process of pouring a little runny genache on top and spreading it down sides, then putting back in the freezer for about 10 minutes, though it quickly became very messy, this was just the first pour. Do this until you have no more genache, or save the last bit to put into a cake decorator bag and write something on top, such as ” I dare you to eat this all at once ! ” or ” Happy Birthday ” or whatever.
