Hi all

I'm making a flourless chocolate cake tonight but would like to ice/decorate it in some way as it is for a friend (I don't bother normally). I'm unsure what icing/topping would work best as the top of the cake normally cracks and goes a bit crusty (its meant to, its not just my cooking!) so not sure what will work.

How about you put some fresh raspberries on top? And maybe send with some cream? <drool>

A dusting of icing sugar always looks fab on a dark chocolate cake, as does debka's suggestion of raspberries, yum. Maybe even a sprig or two of fresh mint!

Chocolate ganache would fill in the cracks nicely ;) (equal amounts of melted choc & cream)
