Joaninhas para dar sorte! - Ladybugs for good luck!

Este é um intenso bolo triplo chocolate com três camadas de bolo de chocolate com pedaços de chocolate inteiro, mousse de chocolate e ganache de chocolate. Os ingredientes são caros mas vale a pena! Leva mais de 1 kg de chocolate amargo. As folhas são feitas com creme de manteiga suíço e as flores são feitas à mão com merengue de limão. As joaninhas são…advinhem! 

A melhor parte deste bolo é que tem uma camada extra, a quarta camada (que normalmente desaparece antes de eu terminar o bolo) e hoje comemo-la ao pequeno-almoço!


As a true chocolate lover said to me in an email this morning, holy hairdo!!! (she wasn't referring to this cake but she might as well have been, I know she likes this one! I always think of her when I make this...)

Anyway, this is an intense triple chocolate cake - three layers of chocolate cake with chocolate chunks, chocolate mousse, and chocolate ganache. The ingredients are expensive but it's worth it! Over a kilo of bittersweet chocolate goes into this. The leaves are swiss buttercream and the flowers are handmade with royal icing. the ladybugs are... guess!

The best part about this cake is the extra (4th) layer of cake etc that it makes (it's usually gone before the cake is put together). Today we ate the 4th layer for breakfast. Yum.

Happy Baking!
