I did not care for this frosting as it is written. Following the directions to make the frosting and I ended up with a very liquid finished product. I was looking for a creamy frosting that would nicely ice my cake. this was not it. it makes an adequate Ganache, but I was looking for a creamy frosting like that pictured. I wasn't pleased. ended up starting over with a regular frosting and using this to flavor souffles and custards because ti just was not what I needed for my cake.
flavor and texture of the cake are excellent, however, preparation of the cake pans is inadequate. I typically line the bottom of cake pans with parchment paper. In this instance, I elected to just follow instructions. My mistake, the bottoms of the layer stayed in the pans. My suggestion is that you should do what you know you should, not what the instructions say. The cake may be worth a second attempt for me (with parchment paper).
