The Galah is a rose-breasted cockatoo. It is a common cockatoo and is found in almost all parts of mainland Australia.
I had never heard of nor seen this particular type of cockatoo. Once I saw a picture of it I knew I wanted to use it. They are such beautiful birds.

G is for Gardens. I'm familiar with flower gardens and vegetable gardens, but there are so many other interesting types of gardens.

G is for Ganache. After tending to one's garden, a little sustenance would be welcome. And what better than . . . chocolate.
Ganache is very simple to make. Heat heavy cream, pour it over chopped chocolate and stir. Click on the caption to watch it being done.

Ganache on Samoa cupcakes.
Ganache can be used to decorate, as in this spiderweb on a cherry-iced cupcake. I hope the spider doesn't come back too soon.

Ganache can also be made with white chocolate.

Napkin Giraffe #98 will be happy to clean up the Ganache. I just hope he doesn't eat it all, too.
