    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Butter two 20cm round cake tins.
    2. Melt the dark chocolate in a saucepan over very low heat. Remove from the heat. Pour the chocolate into a mixing bowl and stir in the butter until smooth.
    3. Add the butter and stir until smooth. Stir in caster sugar, and then stir in the egg yolks, one at a time. Finally stir in the plain flour.
    4. Beat the egg whites until very stiff, then fold them into the cake mixture.
    5. Tip mixture to equal part in the prepared tins. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted near the centre comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Unmould carefully, then cut one of the cakes into a square smaller than the round cake and place it on top.
    6. Melt the white chocolate in a saucepan over very low heat. Roll each waffle cone in the white chocolate to coat it evenly all around, then in the pink sugar. Place the cones upright on a plate and chill in the refrigerator until the white chocolate is no longer runny, about 15 minutes.
    7. Add a drop of pink food colouring to the remaining white chocolate, and spread over the top of the square cake. Once the coating on the cones has set, place them at the 4 corners of the square cake.
    8. Make rampart walls of raspberries between the cones and on top of the square. Place a raspberry at the top of each cone.
    9. Add figurines of fairies or princesses. Refrigerate the cake until serving.
