Why you you shrug off the cake like it doesn't even matter? "just a pastry cream and ganache delivery system" ... When he shows the sliced cake at the end of the video the cream and ganache look great, but that cake looks dry and boxy. If you are going through the effort to put together something delicious, take an extra few minutes and make a real cake would you please? I give it two stars - one for the cream and one for the chocolate.
