Gourmet Ding-Dong Experiment

Posted by Jennifer at 12:33 AM

In an effort to make individual desserts for a recent holiday party, I inadvertently created a "Gourmet Ding-Dong," as one of my guinea pigs said (Thank you, Roger!). Having never tasted a ding-dong before, I wasn't sure if that was a good thing! One thing for sure, these mini-cakes were for total chocolate lovers. It was basically chocolate layered in chocolate, covered in chocolate and then wrapped in chocolate. YUM!

These are 2-inch round, 3-inch tall red velvet cakes layered with dark chocolate ganache. Half of them were filled with cinnamon cream filling and the others were filled with coffee buttercream. They were all covered in milk chocolate plastic (or modeling chocolate) and topped with a bit of buttercream and chocolate leaves or flowers (in order to separate the two flavors). Here are a few more views for you. I hope your mouth is watering... that
is, if you like chocolate!

These were a true mouth watering treat and you didn't even have to take the tin foil off like regular Ding Dongs! Jennifer you are amazing!

I just wanted to comment and let you know I will be bookmarking your site. I think people who make such detailed cakes have a gift something like an artist! you are brilliant and i wouldn't be surprised if i saw you on that TV show where they compete to make cakes! You really have a talent you should open your own shop! I would be your first customer. Really Kudos to you.
