Chocolate Fudge Cake with Dark Chocolate Ganache Frosting

My very 1st successful from scratch birthday cake with froasting and decoration!!! For deary I'm so happy with my perfect birthday cake.

My very 1st massive charity bake. Once a upon a time (4 years plus) there was 3 ladies who started off encouraging each other to bake, to buy the same kitchen gadgets for their bakes, to be an online shopaholic for baking goods, to start selling their bakes, to open shop, etc. This year Standard Chartered Bank SG50 Baking for Sight Charity Event by Seeing is Believing have brought us to work together to sell our bakes. Thanks everyone for your overwhelming support! The Baking Buddies rock with 3 bakers only & we raised SGD$1,762. Believe we're the smallest team that raised so much funds~

I baked approximately 120 cupcakes and receive very very good feedback and praise. This recipe yields 16 cupcakes of 11cm diameter size cupcake cups. Approx 8 recipes!
