Ganesh is from India,
Ganache is from France.
Ganesh is a dancer,
Ganache makes me dance.
My friend Sharon is taking a cake decorating class, and brought her project in as a birthday cake for me. She said the icing was NOT ganache, but I’m here to tell you, it WAS delicious! She put raspberry flavoring in the icing. Now, I’m not a real big raving fan of raspberry, having gotten much too much of it during the 70’s “it can’t be chocolate if it doesn’t taste like raspberries” craze, but Sharon did what a lot of people didn’t do: She used a deft touch. She added just enough raspberry flavor to touch the chocolate with it, so the flavor just blooms within the chocolate like roses at midnight instead of overpowering the chocolate like chloroform on a rag.
She claims her decoration looks like wooly worms, but I think it looks like what it’s supposed to be: a pumpkin. And, as I say, it was MOST delicious!
Thank you, Sharon!
