GANACHE: DESSERTS AND CONFECTIONS is devoted to serving fresh confections made from high quality chocolate, fresh, natural or organic ingredients, sustainable produce from local farms, and using exotic flavors to enhance your chocolate tasting experience.
By using high quality chocolate from around the world, you are able to experience full flavors, the aroma, and sensual tones of smooth, melt in your mouth chocolate.
All confections are made from natural and/or organic resources to enhance your truffle experience. As a chocolate company, we promise to always deliver the freshest ingredients to each and every product.
There are many unique flavors available. If there are certain flavors that you would like for your event which in not mentioned in our Signature Truffle Collection, GANACHE can create a custom chocolate confection for you. There are hundreds of shapes, colors, different packaging options, ribbons, tags and charms currently available to help you customize your party favors. Also available are solid chocolates, hollow chocolates, and chocolate bars/ plaques. For custom molds, please contact GANACHE for more information.
Using local dairy products, produce and other sustainable agriculture is one of our constant goals as a company. We strive to support local farms in Minnesota though all aspects in our confections.
Food coloring is never used in creating truffle fillings. In the event coloring agents are needed for decorations or fillings due to client requests, all food colors are made from all-natural coloring agents.
Due to the nature of corn syrup and the possible affect it has on individuals, GANACHE is devoted to create confections to accommodate these individuals. All of our confections are made with either glucose, local honey, molasses, or a natural inverted sugar like the ones mentioned to prevent crystallization in the final product, making all confections smooth, palatable, and consumable to all individuals.
All confections are made by Chocolatier and Owner, Kevin Lindee. With precise attention to every detail, quality, taste, mouth feel, and the overall final product, Kevin carefully oversees the quality of his products to achieve perfection while bringing new flavors and exciting ideas to his confections.

FILLINGS AND FLAVORS
Our Signature Cake Menu includes recommended flavor profiles of cakes and fillings. We welcome the ability to select different flavor combinations from the menu for different tiers of your cake or have some/all be the same.

In the case of using fresh flowers, GANACHE will put the flowers on the items without an additional fee. We require the contact information of the florist that you are using incase flowers are not at the reception. This is to ensure a contact is available to inquire where they are. If using silk, satin, paper or other types of decoration on the cake besides pre-designed elements, GANACHE will place them on the cake. Please place the items on the cake table so we know what you would like on your cake.
