Arcadia Quest Cake

Watch the video to find out how we made this cool Arcadia Quest cake!

Recipes used in this video:

For the cake, we used this delicious cake recipe from Epicurious. We used the cake recipe almost exact as stated except my kids do not like coffee so we substituted hot water for the hot brewed coffee.

The buttercream frosting we love is this one.  We mixed raspberry preserves into it to make the raspberry buttercream.

*Chocolate Ganache

Ganache can be used as a glaze, icing, sauce, or filling. 


  • 12 ounces chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp flavored liqueur optional


  1. Place chocolate pieces into a large bowl. The higher quality chocolate, the better.

  2. Heat heavy cream on medium high until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour cream over chocolate and stir until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

  3. If you plan to add any liqueurs, add it at this time.

  4. Allow the ganache to completely cool and set up. I put my ganache in the refrigerator to help it set up faster.

  5. Store leftover ganache in the refrigerator.
