the ganche layers
a whipped chocolate frosting, I skipped the rich chocolate frosting to make the cake just a little lighter. The frosting was a mix of cool whip, heavy cream and chocolate pudding mix
the layering. NOTE; FOLLOW THE WHITE CHOCOLATE RECIPE ! I DID NOT AND MY GANCHE WAS ALL DRIPPY-FAIL !
the finished product with shaved white and milk chocolate for decoration
And let them eat cake 🙂
roll the leftover ganache in chopped almonds and now you truffles !
