Double line an 18cm, deep sided springform cake tin with cling film.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Once melted remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the cream using an electric hand whisk until peaks form, then gradually add the melted chocolate, extracts and orange zest. Once well combined, spoon into the prepared tin and either smooth the top, or create some detail such as waves or peaks.
Chill in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight until firm.
Once firm, unmould and place on a serving plate. Dust with cocoa powder. Serve sliced with a dollop of crème fraiche.
