HI There everyone.I know it’s been a long time.The cake I used was devil’s food,then fileed with strawberry buttercream,crumb coated with a chocolate ganacke and then decorated with a white chocolate moussaline.I like using ganaches for crumb coats.It really seals the cake,and gives an extra dimesion of flavor.The cookies are sables,which are like a french shortbread.I found that a food processor is the best way to incorpoated the butter and flour.Yeah,it’s different from most cookies,cuz u incorparate the cold butter into the flour,and then mix all the other ingredients togethet,then add the wet to the dry,hmmm a little like making a rose cake lol.I also took the left over batter and made cupcakes,dipped them in ganach and topped them with strawberry buttercream.I can only post one pic,so I will just post the rest individually.

That is too cute!  I like the idea of crumb coating with ganache. I’ve haven’t gotten that far yet but I will keep it in mind and try it sometime.  I love trying new things.

Thanx!

It all looks great, nice idea to use ganache as a coating/sealer that adds lots of flavor.  Which recipes did you use?
