Last year I learnt how to ganache my own round cake. This year, I decided to expand my repertoire by working on a square cake. I’ve been asked questions such as “what’s the difference between a square and round cake as they are both cake anyway?” Well, round cakes are easier to ganache and cover compared to square cakes as there are no sharp edges to be fiddle with. Having now completed this class, I learnt that the techniques are more or less the same, but there are a few tricks to get the perfect square edges.
