This cheesecake is made of three chocolate layers. Dark chocolate gives it an intense flavour that stays in contrast with subtle milk and white chocolate fillings. I used philadelphia cream cheese (if you can find quark cheese - fresh and soft curd cheese, will be better) and add 3 extra tablespoons of sour cream to the filling because the latter is thicker.

Ganache is a French term referring to a smooth and velvety mixture of chocolate and cream. Dark, milk, or white chocolate can be used to make ganache and different flavorings can be added such as liqueurs and extracts. Butter, oil, or corn syrup can also be added when a dark shiny glaze is desired.
Tomorrow its Ling's birthday and I had promise to make her a Chocolate Cake because she is a chocoholics.
Chocolate is also my all-time favourite special occasion cake. Not only does it wow people presentation-wise, but it’s pretty knock-your-socks-off tasty as well. Unless you’re a chocolate hater, this recipe isn’t for you.
