So, here we are, not wanting to make frosting. I tried to make a ganache, but it was more like the consistency of frosting...
1\2 - 3\4 cup of chocolate
1 TBS. butter
1 1\2 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter and chocolate, stir in vanilla when done.
This made just enough to lightly frost the cake. And then conveniently, we had some chocolate syrup, which I put on the cake as well... Heres the finished cake!!!
Ta Da!! :)
