I always wanted to make a special cake. I never did tall cakes before. It used to be always simple 2 layered cakes.Finally for the New Year I thoght to make this tall cake and decorate.It came out pretty well. So I thoght to share how I did this new year cake.

This is 3 Layered Chocolate Genoise which is layered and frosted with chocolate Ganache . I have already shared how to make chocolate genoise. But for this cake I reduced the recipe to 3/4th to make 6 inch round genoise. I made 3 Cakes of 6 inch round and then frosted with Ganache. You Can Make all the things required in advance(3 Genoise,Sugar Syrup,Ganache,Flower,Royal Icing) before assembling.I Prefer Making Royal Icing Just before using it. Make this special cake to your loved ones and enjoy.
