There are those who like a less "rich" icing and there are those that don't care for the taste of buttercream. Well, no worries there is a solution. I quite often use a Stabilized Whipped Cream icing as a replacement.
The actual term for this cake is "Tuxedo Cake." The colors of the white icing, dark chocolate ganache and red from the strawberries created the classic coloring of a tuxedo, complete with the red "Boutineer."
I am still searching for the perfect name for this cake.............It's out there somewhere.
4 layer tuxedo cake, waiting to be iced.
So that the moisture can be locked in.
The final presentation.
This one is 3 layers and has a thicker ganache.
