  • Assemble cake: Place one layer on serving platter and remove any crown so it is totally flat. Spoon filling over top and top with second flat cake layer. Smooth out the cream all around the sides of cake. Drizzle ganache over cake top allowing it to flow down sides. Place in refrigerator and allow to firm up a bit before slicing to serve.
