    lovely perfect with chocolate fudge cake  -  30 Nov 2011


    So easy to do and tastes fantastic! Makes more than enough for a generous coating and sandwich for a 6 egg cake. Made this 3 times so far and am feeling more confident in my application each time. Thanks Miss Amy!  -  28 Apr 2013


    Really decent recipe. Altered it slightly with half cooking chocolate and half high quality dark chocolate. Works amazingly well.  -  15 Apr 2015
