Chocolate Ganache cake.

This was my first time making chocolate ganache. I was wanting to do something without fondant, and I wanted something extra yummy, so of course something with chocolate was the winner. I love trying new recipes, and I found this one called too much strawberry cake. So I tried it out and it was delish! So this is my too much strawberry cake, with strawberry filling, vanilla buttercream, covered in chocolate ganache, and whipped ganache frosting. The ganache is actually very easy, for those of you who haven't tried it. You melt chocolate and heavy cream, till it's smooth and the right consistency. It pours out so smooth. And then to reach a frosting consistency, I whipped it up, with a bit of powdered sugar.
For the words and the hearts, I used straight chocolate. (You have to be careful when you do this, they're quite fragile) I mad a few extra names just in case. I got the idea from a friend who said, "Who wouldn't want to see their name in chocolate?" Well I loved it, it was super tasty, and pretty.
