Happy Birthday Daddy

I made a Genoise cake for Daddy's birthday. One layer was plain and the other was chocolate.  In the middle was a layer of chocolate ganache.  The icing was a rich chocolate buttercream.  It was the first time I made this recipe (which was a combination of 5 recipes) and it took most of the afternoon.  There was a lot of work with the double boiler and A WHOLE BUNCH of chocolate, butter, and heavy cream involved. Daddy loved it and is still eating it.  He said it was even better the second day after it was refrigerated.  I used recipes out of the WILLIAM SONOMA BAKING BOOK for this cake.  I had a few bloopers, but the result was delicious.  ~Laura

Yum! You've got to come and make me one before my computer malfunctions from the pool of drool.


P.S. Could you post the recipe?
