This was a very special cake made for my boyfriend's mom. All her granchildren call her Ninny so I thought that was the perfect name for this cake.
Her favorite cake is German Chocolate so that was an easy choice when I had to come up with a flavor. But, not everyon in the family likes German Chocolate unfortunately. That was an easy fix. I just made half normal German Chocolate cake and the other half chocolate filling.
It was my first time frosting a cake in ganache. There are a few issues I ran into when the ganache started to cool but other than that I really liked working with it to cover a cake. It helps create really sharp clean lines and because there is no added sugar, it isn't tooth achingly sweet.
