One of my colleagues, a mom-to-be, wanted to eat a chocolate cake. I had once tried making ganache and it had turned out quite good. This was my attempt at making an elegant cake appealing to the female eye and the pregnant lady's palate:-)). I made my first chocolate leaves successfully and placed a real rose. In hind sight, I could have placed the leaves better and given the chocolate shavings on the sides a miss.
Here is the picture of my chocolate cake draped in silky chocolate ganache.
