Chocolate Ganache Cake- Positively Sinful (a Thanksgiving Treat)


I am thankful for many things in my life, this year and every year, and chocolate is one of them :). Labeled "Food of the Gods"( and how can it be otherwise?), chocolate is the thing I cannot resist...well, one of them anyways.

This Ganache Cake is made with both Ghirardelli 100 cacao bar, and a combination of semi-sweet and dark chocolate. So not for the faint of heart.
It was supposed to be enjoyed tomorrow- for our Thanksgiving dinner- but who can wait till then?- and since I am taking something else for the party we are going to- why not?
I thought some "autumn leaves" would sit well with the whole thing- besides you can eat them! The side of the cake is a sheet of chocolate that is piped onto a strip of parchment paper, then applied to the cake- intimidating in the beginning, but really easy- mark my words!

About the taste: I am speechless. I think I will be making this cake over and over- even my better half, who is not a big fan of dark chocolate, said "outstanding". That means something.

 And my little BIG inspiration has tried her hand at chocolate piping- watch out world! She said " mimi, the cake is NOT good"- was expected.

                              Happy Thanksgiving!
