  • Chill the cake for about 20 minutes to firm and set. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, over a low heat, melt the butter.

  • Let it cool slightly, but still with a pouring consistency. Place chilled mini-cakes into a wire rack with a tray below to catch the ganache drippings.
  • Pour ganache over each cake to cover completely. Leave the cakes on a wire rack until the ganache sets and cools down.
  • Decorate with sprinkles or crushed nuts on top, or add fondant toppers is you prefer.
