Ganache




I am 'ganashing' my teeth after my first ganache failure. Never made it before but I know my mistake and what to expect next time. My beautiful blue hydrangeas are doing nothing to hide the disappointing texture of the ganache. Yes, I left it in the fridge overnight BEFORE I spread it. A good lesson, actually, when you take something positive away. These may not look as pretty and shiny as my sister-in-law Heidi's gorgeous car bomb cupcakes, but we'll enjoy them nonetheless.

As you said, I'm sure they'll taste as good. I just made pumpkin cupcakes yesterday. It's the first time I've made a sweet in ages.
