How to Make a Fancy Boutique Cake At Home
Likes: 740 – Dislikes: 5
In this video we are making a boutique style cake- basically she is super shiny and fancy looking 😉 this in total took me less than 2 hours to complete, including the waiting time, and is easier than you think ;D
I used a mud cake for this- the cakes that you see in these videos are usually bakery grade pre-mixes. I love and recommend these, especially because you know they will taste the same every single time, they are great quality and save you a lot of time. You can cover your cake with buttercream instead of ganache as the base if you prefer not to use ganache. I would recommend this if you are going to used a light coloured white chocolate ganache as your main pour over, as a dark chocolate ganache base might show through and make the final product look muddy if your pour over is slightly see through.
DARK CHOCOLATE GANACHE FOR BASE COAT:
400 grams dark chocolate (I use Nestle)
200 grams heavy cream
mix together and zap in the microwave for 30 seconds. stir and repeat. Pour through strainer if there are any stubborn little lumps.
350 grams dark chocolate (I use Nestle)
350 grams heavy cream
see methods for the previous recipe
For the chocolate sail, I used regular dark chocolate and white chocolate without any additions.
For the chocolate wrap around, I recommend adding some vegetable or canola oil. This makes it easier to cut through and gives you more time to play with your marble before the chocolate sets on you. For a total of 250 grams chocolate, I would recommend 1.5 tablespoons of oil mixed through.
That’s it 😀 I hope you guys enjoy this one!
