Birch Tree Log Cake

This is the easiest way I’ve found to prepare ganache when using it to fill and/or ice a cake, before covering a cake in fondant, or even just leaving it as the finish!  See Section 3 (Making Ganache) of the Fundamentals Course for a detailed video showing how to make this ganache.

Check out this video tutorial on how to make modeling chocolate or this live session recording that is all about modeling chocolate and making a rose, too.
