tips 1: how to make garnache looks shiny

hey, hey, hey!
who loves chocolate??
who loves melted chocolate??
who loves strawberries dipped in melted chocolate??
oh no, everyone loves it!! hehe
ok first of all..
i wud like to 'announce' tat im going to share any tips of baking, drawing or what so ever i noe in this blog. =)

like i mentioned before, i love baking not because i love cakes.
i really enjoy the 'PROCESS' of making it..
n most exciting part surely the DECORATION sections.. ngee~
i learnt a lot of tips from youtube, magazine, my former boss, n of course from my other beloved bloggers!

we gonna start with a very basic n simple thing which is, how to make garnache n how to make it more 'radiant'?? ^^

shiny enough huh?? XD

some people prefer demonstration rather than read 'manual' isnt it?
so here's a video on how to make garnache

  1. Combine chocolate and evaporated milk/whipping cream in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir with a metal spoon until smooth. Remove bowl from heat.
  2. Set aside at room temperature to cool, stirring occasionally, until ganache is thick and spreadable.

hah, this part gonna be interesting!
we need bee's honey!
TO MAKE IT SHINY.. (p/s: this is real)

just add a tablespoon while stirring the garnache (when it's still hot)

u can 'manipulate' the amount of milk u wanna use.. depends on the usage. for cookies, just add a little, to make topping like i did below ere, add more milk.

1) MISTAKE.. i added lil milk.. huhu n i did not add honey nor butter (butter also improve it taste n the structure).. see, it looked dull kan?

2) COMPARE.. i added more milk n i added honey to make it BLINGSS~~~ XD

n this picture was when the cake in PHOTO (1) taken out from the refrigerator.

n this was the cake in PHOTO (2) taken out from the freezer after 2 hrs, (the garnache didnt change in structure nor the colour.. n thus, look damn delicate! ;D )

BUT, both of them tasted nice.. it was just the appearance.. n yeah people do say that dont judge a book by its cover but i guess most people STILL judge 'smthing' by its 'appearance' even they said they dont. hehe 
(no offence)

ok thanks for reading.. i was just bored n came back from jogging.. writing this sum sort like cooling down activity.. XD

bye, assalamualaikum.
