Chocolate Shortcake


What do you learn in this course?

Deep in chocolate

The texture of the cake is light, but not the chocolate flavour. By using chocolate whipped ganache, you can taste deep dark chocolate.

Perfect Balance

The balance between the heavy chocolate flavour from the insert cream and the lightness of the chocolate genoise creates an amazing contrast.

Beautiful Design

Look at the use of the microwave genoise – simple but effective. It’s an extremely handy technique to have under your sleeve.
