Chocolatelove: Super Bowl Sunday Football Cake

In case you didn't know I love CHOCOLATE!
Luckily I am a co-hosting #ChocolateLove!
This is my second Chocolate love post so check out: Fudgy Cupcakes with PB frosting

I was invited to my best friends house on Sunday for the Super Bowl.
I have a football cake mode and I thought it would be appropriate to use it!
My friend Megan LOVES my Chocolate Ganache so I decided to make some just for her.
I looked around for a great yellow cake mix and decided to make one of Martha Stewart recipes.
Can't go wrong with her recipes!!!

I then adapted Martha Stewart's Ganache frosting.
I used the following ingredients:
2 cups of heavy whipping cream
12 oz of bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
1/4 corn syrup.

To make the ganache following these steps:
1. Combine the whipping cream and corn syrup
2. Heat it up ; Do not boil
3. Add on top of the chocolate in a small bowl
4. Do not stir until chocolate has begun to melt.
5. Stir until combined
6. Put into the fridge for 10 minutes. Stir and repeat until chocolate thickens.
7. Use
