This weekend, Ina Garten shared a mesmerising video of a chocolate cake that not only looks incredibly tasty, but that also has a brilliant decorating hack To achieve the look of a chevron pattern on top of the chocolate ganache cake, Ina pipes vanilla icing on top in straight lines, and then runs the edge of a sharp knife through the icing in alternate directions. The finished look is a perfect V-shaped chevron graphic that looks a lot harder to make than it really is. Ina, staying true to her "how easy is that?" mantra, reassures her fans in the caption by saying, "Looks professional but with a little practice it's really easy!" If you're inspired to re-create this beautiful cake at home, begin with Ina's chocolate ganache cake recipe, and then make the finishing touches with your favourite white icing.
