Drip cakes

Can any bakers help?
We a have a family bake off via zoom this week (seemed a good idea at the time)
As itís all about look and presentation Iíve decided to try a drip cake. Are they easy or am I better doing something else?

Very easy!
I make loads! What flavours are you going for? Have you got a picture of exactly what youíre hoping for?

I have thousands of pag3s open on my iPad. I saw this one but I was going to change the decoration oetker/uk-en/recip...nade-drip-cake
I should add that the taste wonít really matter as itís all on looks and presentation as we will be hosting the final online 😂

This Black Forest is probably my current favourite.
The drip was a bit haphazard as I was rushing and used a spoon.

Not sure why my message posted twice?
That will be easy.
Have you got colourings and sprinkles, piping bags etc already?

I tend to do 3 or 4 layers.
If you want to drip with white chocolate ganache youíll need very little cream.
With dark youíll need about 80g chocolate and 100ml double cream.
Whipping cream is more stable and will give a smoother finish but with white chocolate you might find itís too runny

I think it will be white chocolate. Could I then colour it pink?
I am a beginner but enthusiastic if nothing else 😂
