This is my all time favourite chocolate cake. My friend and I discovered it when looking for a substantial chocolate cake to use as part of our wedding cake. It's really only for special occasions as it's quite rich (and expensive). Perfect to celebrate Weddings, birthdays, anniversary's, Fridays, Saturdays.....Mondays?!!!
I made this one for my husband for his birthday last year and then my mother made it for him this year (I had a 6 week old baby, pretty good excuse). We actually made the cake 2 months before when I was pregnant and put it in the freezer (undecorated), my mother then took it out of the freezer the day before to leave it to defrost and then decorated it.
We covered the whole thing with a chocolate butter icing then drizzled it with melted white chocolate. Then let this cool a little before drizzling it with melted milk chocolate, tipping the plate to let it pour over the side. Finally decorating it with whole strawberries which I had dipped in melted milk chocolate. To finish drizzle with white chocolate using a chop stick. You need a very sharp knife to get through all the chocolate but its well worth it! A definite crowd pleaser!
