Valentine's Day Cake

I made my first attempt at doing a topsy turvy cake and it was a complete success. I have seen them done on Food Network Cake Challenges, Ace of Cakes, and Cake Boss and have always wanted to try one. When we learned of a benefit concert and silent auction being held for my wife's cousin Dan Sloan she had the idea that I should make a cake and donate it for the silent auction. I thought it was a great idea so we decided on a design and went for it. After many hours of work we ended up with an absolute masterpiece!

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache Filling!

Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes would be so proud!

The silent auction went extremely well! We started the bidding at $75 and it was bought for $300!!!
