Ganache Cream. Yummy Mousse for Delicious Cakes and Desserts


Hello! We`ve offered you a lot of recipes for exquisite desserts. But if you want to create your own recipe, we can give you an idea: cook this tender cream and use it for cooking pies, cupcakes and huge cakes.

Ganache is a tender cream, made of chocolate and cream. This recipe was invented by accident. One French cook added melted chocolate into the bowl with cream. His colleague called this guy “ganache”, that means “stupid” in French. However, when he tried this dessert, he really liked  the taste.

Nowadays there are 3 main recipes for this tender dessert. It may be cooked with cream, butter and the mixture of both ingredients. Still, many people think, that traditional cream should be made of cream and chocolate. I should say that this recipe is also the healthiest recipe among all of them. For cooking Ganache cream, you may use dark, white and milk chocolate. I recommend you to choose the one, that is used by professionals. So, let`s get down to work.
