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