Chocolate Easter Bunny Experiment
Ok, Sweet Readers..so this is a bit strange...this bunny DID NOT look this scary and weird in real life. I promise. Believe me. In the photo, I think it truly looks rather evil. Scary. It was actually a lovely chocolate cake very heavily coated in ganache. There were three egg cakes and chocolate truffles with candy coating as embellishments...made for my women's bible study Friday morning.
Problem was, the cute bunny had so many niches and nooks and crannies that my method of pouring the ganache over the top of it just didn't work. So I had to keep pouring..and pouring..and pouring. It's three dimensional for goodness sake - cut me some slack! So it got a little out of hand. But heck, out of hand and into the mouth tasted pretty darn good! Kinda like when my high hat cupcakes became low hats--tada! Extra Chocolate is always good :) Anyhow, in real life, it wasn't this scary and even though the base was only about 2 1/2 inches wide, I actually made it to church without it falling over. I'm an amazing driver :O
So there ya go. I love the pan (thanks Mikela, for the gift!), and I will try again soon. If you have any hot tips on getting the coating down both sides of the bunny at the same time without getting fingerprints on it or messing up one side or the other, do tell. I would love your advice :)
Have a sweet weekend!
