This recipe is for around 20 slices of cake.

You will need:

– mixing bowls

– a mixer

– 3 cake tins in different sizes

Ingredients for the cake:

– 500 g butter

– 600 g dark chocolate

– 10 eggs

– 12 tbsp sugar

Ingredients for the cream:

– 100 g sugar

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease the cake tins. Add the butter and chocolate to a pan and heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Then remove the pan from the heat.
Beat the eggs with the sugar in a bowl, until light and fluffy. Sieve the self-raising flour over the bowl and stir in carefully. Then fold the chocolate mixture through the flour mixture.
Fill the cake tins with the batter and bake the cakes for 45 minutes. Allow them to cool and cut each cake into three layers.
Beat the mascarpone with the cream and sugar. Spread the cream mixture between the layers of cake. Build the cake up, starting with the largest cake layers. Then stack the smaller layers on top. Top the cake with a layer of cream. Decorate the cake with the fruit, the marzipan flowers and the gypsophila.
