I was tasked to make another galaxy themed cake, but had already made a galaxy mirror glaze cake! After a bit of thought, I decided to make some galaxy colored cake layers, cover the cake in a gothic black ganache. This cake design is inspired by Sweetapolita! I also added some of my favorite sprinkles from Neon Yolk Shop and Fancy Sprinkles. The recipes used can be found below:
I made four, seven inch cake layers, which I colored two shades of blue, and two shades of purple.
I then covered the cake with room temperature dark chocolate ganache, which I colored black with gel food coloring. I’ve found that dark chocolate ganache is MUCH easier to color a true black than frosting. You can use the same techniques to smooth ganache that are used to smooth buttercream!
I added a sprinkles around the base, and piped on some ganache drops using a piping bag.
And that’s it! No fancy tips, no additional components, just a lot of ganache, and some colorful cake layers 🙂
