What is liquid gold?
In my kitchen liquid gold is Chocolate Ganache!
What's chocolate ganache? Well the correct answer is that its more than one thing. Its a beautiful shiny chocolate glaze for a cake or cupcake, Its a light and creamy frosting for a cake or cupcake, its a frosting that you can easily pipe, and add it to whipped cream and it will become a rich, creamy mousse.
