Panic Attacked and Became Chocolate Cake!

What a day and what a panic invention that I have made last weekend...Actually according to plan, I really wanted to bake a nice and silky Tiramisu...but then again it was a disastrous plan that maybe will I "NEVER" baked again for the next 2 months...hihihi 

         So, the story begins with, I already succeed baking my chocolate sponge cake and it was marvelous. The next step is to make the cheese topping...So, I mixed the cream cheese, whip cream and sugar together using the electric mixer...then after a while...Tada~ 

          The cream was not as I expected...not even fluffy and it was sluggish...It look horrible and yuks! This when the panic strikes. I'm thinking that I don't want to waste the creams so I decided to make chocolate ganache just to garnish my chocolate sponge cake...and finally it became OMG! Superb...but honestly i need to practice more to make the chocolate ganache to get the right consistency.

Looks so tempting~
          Down there you can see how I did it...It was a s simple as ABC actually...but I don't know why I still cannot make a good one...Well, practice makes perfect. Enjoy cooking then people
