Chocolate Bailey's Cake

Dan's aunt & uncle stayed with us overnight & I managed to throw this cake together just in time. It was a simple yellow cake with chocolate ganache frosting. But I thought it needed a little something - so it got a couple shots of Bailey's. The end result was a three layer yellow cake with chocolate Bailey's whipped ganache frosting covered with poured chocolate Bailey's ganache with a generous sprinkling of chocolate jimmies & white nonpareils. Best served with a glass of ice cold milk.

Chocolate Bailey's Ganache Recipe:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsps Bailey's

Chop chocolate chips in food processor. Heat cream on stove & add in chocolate. Stir constantly until chocolate is melted through. Pour into mixing bowl & put in fridge for 15 minutes (or freezer if you are pressed for time). After cool, add Bailey's & whisk on medium speed until fluffy. If using the ganache to pour, only whisk to mix the Bailey's in.

This is perfect to add to my chocolate guinness cake! Thank you! I had the idea to add bailey's to a dark chocolate ganache, but I wanted to make sure it would work. That's how I found your blog!
