Every now and then I crave chocolate cake. A couple of months ago when that happened, I made Devil's Food Cake with Midnight Ganache from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. I made them in cupcake format and they weren't very pretty so I didn't bother to take pictures and blog about it. I made too much Midnight Ganache so I froze the leftover, knowing they will come in handy at some point.
The dried fruits on top of the cake are some dried cherries that's been soaked with sugar syrup and Grand Marnier again (yes there is a theme here lol). I didn't soak them long enough to really absorb all the liquid but it turned out fine.
It is a pretty yummy combo. Definitely not bad for a weekend whim of "let's make a chocolate cake" using whatever I happen to have at home. The cherries definitely could have used more soaking, they are a tad dry, but overall the cake is pretty tasty. Definitely a re-do!
