I've been extremely liberal with my chocolate layer on this layer cake and softened a whole Terry's Chocolate Orange to finish everything! Presently, you may think this is excessively chocolate over a modest portion cake, however I cherish the complexity of the thick chocolate against the morsel of the cake. Never an excessive amount of chocolate as I would see it!
Do remember however this doesn't make it the most effortless cake to cut into slick cuts as the chocolate will split and break as you cut in to it. I very like the reason of snacking ceaselessly at the chocolate lumps that sever, yet on the off chance that you needed perfect and clean cuts you should need to diminish your chocolate layer a bit.
