Chocolate cake with twin frosting

Today I will not describe my recipe, as cake is well known and universal. I am trying my hands on few frosting which I have used for this cake. I am using Mascarpone cheese frosting and chocolate ganache with a fancy white chocolate garnish.

Ingredient:
All purpose flour:        1 cup
Sugar:                         1cup
Eggs:                           3 large
Butter:                         1/2 cup
Brown chocolate bar:   125gm
White Chocolate bar:   50gm
Heavy cream:               1/2 cup
Mascarpone cheese:    4table spoon
Vanilla sugar:               1 table spoon
Vanilla essence:           1/2 tea spoon
Baking powder:           1/2table spoon
Whipped cream:          1 cup

Method:

1) Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius.
2) For chocolate ganache cut the brown chocolate in fine pieces add boiling heavy cream to it. Keep it for a minute and then add 1 spoon of butter and start whisking until smooth and glazing frosting is formed ( about 3-4 minute). Refrigerate it.
3) Separate egg white and yolk, using a electric blender whisk the egg white until light and fluffy.
4) In another bowl mix butter and sugar until creamy and light. Add egg yolk and vanilla essence.
5) Add flour & baking powder separately and mix it to the butter and egg mixture. Add 1/2 cup chocolate ganache to it. Fold this mixture with the egg white very gently.
6) Grease the tin and pour the mixture. Bake it for 45-50 minutes until the tester comes out clean. Cool it on a wire rack.
7) For Mascarpone cheese frosting. Mix Mascarpone cheese,  vanilla sugar and whipped cream. Refrigerate it.
8) For white chocolate garnish. Cut the chocolate in small pieces and microwave it in a microwave safe plastic container for 20 secs. Mix well, heat again for 10 second and mix. Repeat the process if required.
Pour the melted chocolate in a plastic cone and take out your favourite design on a silver foil. Refrigerate it for 10 minutes and slowly take it out from the foil once the chocolate tree is frozen.
10) To assemble, cut the cake in half and put the Mascarpone frosting in between. Pour and spread the remaining ganache over the cake and decorate it with white chocolate garnish.

BON APPETIT..
