Dark and White Chocolate Cake

This is a super rich chocolate cake, I’m talking over 500g worth of chocolate. A slightly altered verison of this white chocolate wedding cake from BBC Good Food, again for my parents silver wedding. We did 3/5 of the recipe and used two 24cm round cake tins, and didn’t do the dark chocolate buttercream layers!

A tip for the white chocolate buttercream, work quickly as the white chocolate sets very quickly!

For the ganache, I was very impatient…. It’s best to let it set for at least an hour or two to thicken, not 15 minutes..

Not exactly how I imagined it, we will call it rustic.
