I made this cake for a friend's birthday recently. The cake served 24 people easily and I received lots of compliments on it. The cake is a dark chocolate sponge layered with cream and jam, covered in shiny dark chocolate ganache and decorated with raspberries and chocolate fingers. The recipe for the sponge is borrowed and adapted from another source and the decorations are a mix and match of ideas I've picked up from several different places. So credit is due to several people for this recipe.

Whipping cream and plain chocolate are all you need for this basic yet still supreme chocolate ganache! Make it thick enough to use as a chocolate filling or icing, or thin enough to drizzle over a cake as a glaze. Use good quality chocolate, and get ganaching!
