Chocolate Toppings for your cakes

Your cake will look dull without any toppings. So, here are 2 versions of chocolate toppings.

Version 1: Chocolate topping

150 gr butter, chopped
150 gr dark chocolate, chopped

  1. Combine the butter and chocolate in a pan.
  2. Stir over LOW heat until melted. Remove from the heat to cool slightly.
  3. Pour the topping over the cake, letting it run down the side to create the 'mud' effect.

Version 2: Chocolate buttercream topping

25 gr butter
3 tsp cream
1/4 cup (30 gr) sifted icing sugar

  1. Combine the chopped chocolate, butter, cream and icing sugar in a small pan.
  2. Stir over LOW heat until the mixture is smooth and glossy.
  3. Spread the chocolate buttercream over the top of the cake with a flat-bladed knife.
