Made this for a friend's birthday. Very simple, but a bit time consuming. Very decadent; would definitely make it again. I used 36 ounces of heavy whipping cream so I could be certain to have extra thich layers of ganache. Was also a beautiful presentation.

Thank you so much for this recipe. I made this for my husbands birthday and everyone loved it. He said it was one of the best, if not the best, cakes he has ever eaten. And it was so easy to make. It is very rich and even tastes better the next day. I drizzled mine with melted milk chocolate chips and topped each whole hazelnut with a little chocolate as garnish. Thank you for the recipe.

Awesome "cake"!! I made this for my monthly supper club and everyone loved it and asked for the recipe. So, I'm sending them to recipe zaar so they can check it out for themselves. It does take a while to make but it's also VERY simple. This will definitely go in my recipe book!

I made 2 smaller cakes for DH & myself from a scaled down amount- I traced a saucer onto baking paper 6 times and used the outlines as a guide for spreading the meringue into circles. These had a beautiful flavour although I was a little disappointed the meringue went soft (I like mine crunchy). I think a nice variation to try next time would be to serve the ganache in small pots with individual meringues on the side (a la choc mousse). A wonderful prepare-ahead dessert for guests which is sure to impress. made for ZWT3

I halved this and used a pastry bag to pipe individual meringues--so I ended up with four absolutely beautiful oval shaped individual meringue napoleans. Used the pastry bag for the ganache and the cream as well--Cheryle--they were just so pretty and so delicious!
