Valentine's Day Chocolate Cake

How to Serve:

1. Slice the cake into two layers and sandwich them together again with chocolate icing (available ready-to-use from any supermarket). Cover the top with the remaining icing and add a few pretty strawberries on top. For extra special effects, cut the sponge into a heart shape before you add the icing.

2. Turn the cake into a trifle by layering it with whipped cream and raspberries.

3. Serve the cake warm in a bowl with salted caramel fudge sauce or ice cream.

4. Take an A4 sheet of paper, cut out a heart shape and use as a stencil to add an icing sugar heart to the surface of the cake.

Happy best Valentine's Day ever!
