Hi lucyyummy chocolate cake... dunno why but i see ur chocolate cake.. my heart will beat very fast... thou i dun lik to eat chocolate... Bravo!
karlsfoodie,hahahah...don't get heart attack over this cake.rgds
aunty, how do you get such a smooth coverage?Do you pour the ganache over the cake at its final stages? And do you do it over a rack?Cos whenever I use a rack, im dumbfounded as to how to actually GET THE CAKE OFF the rack without ruining it!
Hi Amrita,yes I poured the ganache at the final over a cooling rack. I place a metal plate below (use a cake board if it's an order), pour the ganache and let it flow to the bottom until it somehow stop at a certain stage. Use a tissue to wipe off the base plate and place the whole cake into the fridge to chill till set and then clean the plate again...normally the cleaning part is fun amrita cos anything that sticks to the finger goes into the mouth for cleaning.rgds
Oh! Thanks Aunty! And for the rosettes, you just let some ganache thicken and then pipe?Your cake looks better than a lot of bakeries which are really sloppy! :D

Dear Aunty,I'm a big cooking book collector! I'm sure Aunty got lotsa cooking books on shelf as well right? :) I was wondering where do you normally buy good cooking books from? Such as books like Pierre Herme etc? In Amazon or Kinokuniya?thanks!! And yess...In love with your Site and bakes!!!Jas
Wow, your moussee cake looks fantanstic! May I know if this is a non-bake? And also is it possbible to share the receipe? Thanks=)
Hi LucyYour cakes are marvellous! I love browsing through, especially your chiffon cakes. I can never get those like yours. Did you learn yourself or somewhere? If you do conduct lessons please let me know! I will be the first to sign up. :) :)By the way, what do you mean by pouring ganache using a rack? hat kind of rack is that? Recently i creamed a cake but cant seem to smooth the cream evenly especially at the sides. Is it that i got to use a tin or something? regardssunny_dreamzz
Lucy, your ganache is beautifully done. So smooth and shiny. Mine is alway quite messy.
karlsfoodie, I was about to say the same! Aunty Yo, the sight of your beautifully luxurious cake made my knees go weak!
Thanks bluecrystal and hugbear for your compliments.sunny_dreamzzthe rack is a cooling rack for cooling cakes. It's not for pouring ganache. I just pour the ganache on top of the cake and it just flow down to the side.You mentioned creaming the cake but you did not emphasize whether it's ganache or fresh cream. It's a matter of practice and for fresh cream don't play too long with the cream and create pockets of holes, then you have problem creaming. You cannot over cream the whip cream and make it too stiff , making creaming difficult. rgds
Hi esther,The cake is flourless and it's baked whereas the mousse is not baked.rgds
Hi Jas,I buy from both: Kino and amazon.comFor chocolate desserts by Pierre Herme - I bought from Kinokuniya.rgds
Thanks mamafami for your compliments.rgds
Hi Auntie Lucy,I love this cake! Looks so delicious, just like those for an afternoon high tea with girlfriends.Just for your info since you're such a fan of cook books, Pantry Magic also sells books. If they do not have the title, you can email them and ask them to order for you. I did it for 1 book, it's cheaper than buying from Borders or Kinokuniya.
Thanks Trif for your info.rgds
Wow, your creations are just fanstatic, I look at your cakes everyday, so yummy. Is unbelievable. Also thanks for sharing the recipes.
