12-Layer Chocolate Cake
I am pleased to present to you my 12-layer chocolate cake, a delicious and visually stunning dessert that will surely impress your guests. This multi-layered cake is a classic North American favorite, with a twist inspired by the popular naked cake trend that emerged in weddings in 2010. To create this show-stopping cake, I use a third of the honey ganache glaze recipe to cover the top, giving it a beautifully smooth and glossy finish. The key to a successful ganache base cake lies in the choice of sponge. For this recipe, I recommend using viennois biscuit, Joconde biscuit, or pain de Gênes. Pain de Gênes, also known as the "bread of Genoa," is a cake made primarily from almond paste, eggs, and melted butter, with just a minimal amount of flour. This makes it a great option for those looking for a gluten-free dessert. When it comes to enjoying a cake with ganache, remember that it's best served at room temperature. Allow the cake to sit out for a couple of hours before serving to ensure the ganache is perfectly soft and luscious. You've always wanted to create a stunning and delicious multi-layered chocolate cake? You're in the right place. Get ready to elevate your baking skills and wow your guests with this decadent dessert.
