Chocolate Daquoise Cake

 I always have too many egg whites in the freezer ^^", well if you make a lot of ice cream you may have the same problem too.


But you can call it problem or blessing, it depends on how you deal with it. So this time rather than keeping it without knowing what to do, I turn it into delicious, cute and very easy cake.
This cake is made from Daquoise or almond biscuit that's easier and take less time to make than meringues and yes, it's very delicious too. The filling is soft chocolate ganache, with load of butter ^^. You can use glucose instead of the honey in the ganache if you don't like honey. I decorated my cake by sifting the cocoa powder over a piece of doily paper, it makes this small cake very, very cute. Serve it with a cup of hot drink and enjoy!
