To garnish: You can choose to shave some dark chocolate on the top for a lovely decadent finish like the cake shown above. You can also melt about 40 gms of dark chocolate on a double boiler and then drizzle on the edges of the buttercream frosting after it has set for about 20 minutes for a lovely finish. Be creative!
Serve and enjoy ^_^!!
