- Preheat your oven to 160C/140C Fan. Grease & line an 8×8 square tin or what ever tin you like.

- Let your cake cool completely.
- Lets make the ganache, warm up your cream then pour over your chocolate. Mix until smooth then place in the fridge until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
- Place your cakes on a serving plate then load on your ganache, I just used a spatula to do this but use whatever you like.
- Decorate however you like, I did mine easy and textured then added on some chocolate chips.
- Slice up and enjoy! This cake will last for up to 5 days in a sealed container.
