Red Velvet Cake with Creamy White Chocolate Ganache
 
Yield:
18 mini layer cakes or 36 servings, 1/2 cake each

Ingredients

Ingredients Weights Measures
white chocolate, divided 22 oz. -
heavy cream, divided 26 oz. 3-1/4 cups
PHILADELPHIA Original Cream Cheese, cubed, softened 1 lb. -
Red velvet cake batter 4 lb. -

Directions

CHOP 1 lb. chocolate finely. (Or, finely chop 8 oz. chocolate for trial recipe.) Bring 2 cups heavy cream (or 1 cup cream for trial recipe) and cream cheese to boil in medium saucepan on medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Add chopped chocolate; whisk until completely melted. Refrigerate overnight.

MEANWHILE, pour cake batter into parchment paper-lined and sprayed full-sheet pan (or into lined half-sheet pan for trial recipe); bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool overnight.

BEAT remaining cream in 6-qt. mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Spoon white chocolate ganache into separate 6-qt. mixer bowl. Beat 1 min. or until mixture holds a peak. Fold in 1/4 of the whipped cream until well blended; fold in remaining whipped cream.

CUT cake into 36 (3-inch) rounds (or into 18 [3-inch] rounds for trial recipe). Discard trimmings or reserve for another use. Place 1 cake round in each of 18 (3-inch) cake rings (or in each of 9 cake rings for trial recipe); cover each with 1-1/2 oz. ganache. Repeat layers. Refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or until ganache is firm. Shave remaining white chocolate.

DIP paring knife in warm water; run around edge of each cake. Carefully remove cakes from rings. Top each cake with 3 Tbsp. shaved chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
