Exploring Dora

To make this cake I really had to make some explorations in Dora's world since I'm not that into Dora cartoons. This cake with Dora's theme consists of a vanilla cake filled with chocolate cream and covered with chocolate ganache. It's decorated with some royal icing and some sugar sprinkles :-)

neanche io conosco bene Dora, ma dovrò aggiornarmi visto che la mia nipotina la adora e me ne parla sempre! ho provato a farle vedere ScoobyDoo ma non le piace, anzi le fa paura, vuole vedere Dora e Pingu!
ps la torta è veramente bellissima, complimentoni!!!

This is a great cartoon cake! I have to say it's really impressive how you got the likeness without an outcome that looks to "traced". The line looks very natural and fluid and the color palette is perfect!

A.) What exactly is ganache, and how can I make it? (It looks splendiforous!)

and...

B.) What tips do you use to do that with the frosting? I am a total beginner.
