  • Do not forget to remove the lined parchment paper .

Frosting

  • Ideally you should place the cake on a wire rack over a rimmed platter and pour your ganache evenly over the top of your cake until desired coverage is reached, but I just placed it on my platter and poured the ganache .
  • I added some tinned peaches and some fresh cream to the cake and it made a perfect dessert .
