I used chocolate ganache for frosting. I just followed this recipe and it was perfect.
Now to assemble:
Put one cake on a platter. Spread some of the frosting over this layer. Top with the other cake. Frost top and side of cake.

I also did vanilla buttercream frosting for the swirl and add a cherrie.

After I finished making the cake, I was so happy because it was my first to make a really nice looking cake, hahaha :)
