Moist chocolate layers sandwiched with dark chocolate meringue buttercream, frosted with dark chocolate fudge frosting.
The defining element of this cake lies in the luscious fudge frosting, the least sweet of frostings. It doesn't hurt that it is so gorgeously dark and smooth. A sprinkling of Maldon sea salt flakes enhances the dark chocolate notes.
A smallish seven-inch three-layer three-inch height cake weighs in at 1kg, perfect for small parties. The bigger nine-inch cake is recommended for eight portions and more.
You can also top-up to have it embellished with fresh raspberries instead of piped frosting.
