Everytime I make a cake I learn something new or realise a different way of doing things.
When you want to achieve dark colours in a cake, ganache is always easier to darken compared to buttercream.
However this cake is covered in buttercream and I used my airbrush to cover it in black. Both ways work but the ganache is much easier.
I used a paintbrush to flick gold all over the cake and the chocolate drip is handprinted in edible gold paint also.
To decorate I used Oreos, kit-kats, ferro rocher and dark chocolate malteasers.
