I'm feeling...deflated! My cake didn't rise and my ganache is gloppy - what happened?

Ok, expert home baking hounds, what did I do wrong? I made Ina Garten's mini orange chocolate chunk cake and followed the recipe, except I used one bundt pan instead of 6 little bundt pans.

Used my hubby's KitchenAid mixer instead of my hand mixer, could that be the problem? To be honest, it intimidates me a bit. Did I cream the sugar/butter too much? The finished cake tastes good, it's just very low, like a pathetic little and flat bundt cake.

And if that wasn't bad enough, my ganache is not drizzleable. It's gloppy and thick and just sits on top of the cake instead of running down the cake...My baking energy is definitely off today. Any thoughts? Thanks!
