About this Bake

This is a classic chocolate cake recipe separated into two cake tins, levelled off and stacked using chocolate buttercream topped with dark chocolate shavings.

Top tip

Use a knife to chop a chocolate bar of your choice into chocolate shavings (rather than using store-bought chocolate shavings) to give a more rustic and homemade look to your cake.
