Take a plain and simple cake to the next level by adding a dramatic drip. Whether you let the drip stand on its own like with this Mocha Cake or jazz it up with some fancy ruffles and piping like this Caramel Cake.
There are various techniques and styles. I like my drips thick and dramatic, some people like them thin and even. Whatever your preference you can't go wrong. I use a teaspoon as it gives me more control and I can be more heavy-handed in areas for something more dramatic, but using a squeeze bottle is very common for those thin and precise drips.
It will take some practice to know what the right consistency is for the ganache or caramel. You can test the drip on an upside-down drinking glass to see how it falls.
I hope you love these drip cakes as much as I do!
