Dorie suggests decorating the cake with white chocolate curls. I am never completely pleased with the result of my chocolate curls. I use a vegetable peeler that is sharp and I try to warm the chocolate a bit before attempting to cut the curls, but the result seems to resemble shavings rather than curls. Any suggestions?

|I love the technique for making the ganache: pour boiled cream over chocolate, let sit for 30 seconds, then gently stir in concentric circles. Baking is so much fun!|
