    Total flop

    Let me preface my review by noting that I am not a novice baker. I have been baking for 40 years and while not everything I make turns out good, I have few total flops. This was one of them, though. This cake was a complete waste of time, money and effort. The cake itself turned out gummy and doesn't look very good. I haven't tasted it yet, so maybe it tastes okay. Based on everything else, I don't expect so. The ganache was runny, not ganache-y and didn't thicken, even though I refrigerated it for half and hour and then put it in the freezer for another half hour. I assume the recipe called for too much soy milk, because until I added the last 1/4 cup or so it looked fine. It also tastes like plain melted chocolate, which is not what one looks for in a ganache. Also, because the ganache was liquidy rather than creamy, there wasn't enough of it for six layers and the top/sides of the cake. The syrup was sugar water, not syrup - but maybe it was meant to be? We ended up with a lopsided cake, dripping chocolate from all sides. As I said, a complete waste of time, effort and money. And now I need to find someone who'll agree to eat it or else the whole thing will end up in the trash. And BTW, I gave this recipe one star because there was no option for no stars.
