Chocolate Banana cake with Ganache



After a wonderful preparation of Chocolate Banana cake. I have planned to dress up my cake, to add further more beauty and taste by choosing Ganache.  Ganache is the frosting what I have done, which is the French term referring to a smooth mixture of chopped chocolate and heavy cream. When it is poured over the cake it produces smooth and shiny glaze, this is whipped to give a nice thick and spreadable frosting.
