Bring cream to a boil in a saucepan.
Pour cream over the other ingredients and let sit for a few minutes. Blend ingredients by hand and let sit for another 3 minutes until it thickens slightly.
Assemble and bake the cakes:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Position the rack in the middle of your oven. Lightly coat the pan with butter or baking spray.
Start with your favorite Devil’s Food Cake recipe or try ours. Pour batter into the pan cavities, filling to 2/3 full.
Bake for 13–15 minutes until done. Let the cakes cool in the pan.
Once the cakes are cool, gently slice the top layer off the cake to create a flat surface.
Using a cookie cutter, create an inner well in each cake, being careful to leave the bottom intact. Reserve the removed inner cake pieces.
Gently pipe the crème filling into the cake using a pastry bag.
Cover the crème filling with a layer of removed cake to seal.
Set a cooling grid in a jellyroll pan and place the filled cakes on top. Spread ganache over the individual cakes.
Allow ganache to set prior to serving.
