Chocolate Carmel Ganache Cake

One of my best friends from college leads a thrilling life of overseas adventure now, as her husbamd works for the state department with his phD in economics, traveling around the world doing big important things. Every once in a while, they come home and visit everyone. All of our group from college got together this week and had a great time! Last time we got together, none of js had children, and now, everyone there had at least 3! In any case, the party was pot-luck, so naturally, I brought the cake! 

Each tier has 4 layers of alternating vanilla and chocolate cake, filled with whipped chocolate caramel ganache and toffee bits, frosted with more chocolate caramel ganache and decorated with fondant ribbons and sugar paste flowers. The top tier had milk chocolate caramel ganache and the bottom tier had dark chocolate caramel ganache, so everyone could choose what they liked. 

It was so fun to see all my friends and how much they've changed (or stayed the same!). 


  1. Your cake looks lovely! Out of interest, did you make the flowers yourself, and if so, how were they made?

  2. Yes, I make all my flowers. I use Nicholas Lodge's gumpaste recipe. He has a class on making sugar flowers on craftsy.com, where he shows how to make the paste and flowers. It's excellent.
