Rocky Road Cake



This is one of my best chocolate cakes I have made.
It's rich, moist and so chocolately, it's a cake that fits perfectly for any chocoholic.
I made this for my friend Claire who is celebrating her 30th!
And she still looks the same as the first day I met her.
Hope she has a great birthday party this weekend!
Happy Birthday Claire!
So, do you fancy making one of these?
It doesn't have to be a special occassion, you can just make one for a special treat.
Just a small treat.....

You need to make a rich chocolate sponge, recipe is here.
Prepare some chocolate mousse, recipe here & some whipped cream.

 The picture above is a quick guide to layering & creaming your cake and drizzle it with a chocolate mirror glaze or chocolate gananche.  Recipes can be found here:

 Chocolate ganache
Sprinkle with chopped walnuts, and broken digstive biscuits.

Sprinkle with mini marshmellows and chopped glace cherries.

Drizzle more chocolate over it and chill in the fridge.
Crunchy, moist, fluffy, creamy, chocolately, sweet.....
Can I just say it makes your mind go crazy with so much happeneing in your mouth!!
Seriously a cake to die for!  

  For a perfect slice, warm a serrated knife when you cut each slice.
You got to admire the layers and colour!

Now time to TUCK in.......Mmmm
