The cake turned out well and tasted good too. It uses lots of melted chocolate and is a rather dense cake and doesnt rise too much as their is no baking powder used. The topping is basically a chocolate ganache with a little butter to help it set.
I decorated the cake with strawberries and champagne grapes and I must say that the cake was quite a delight! Mum enjoyed it and I suppose that's what really matters...!
Some preferred the cake by itself, while others enjoyed it with a dollop of ice cream.
