Tip 1: When stacking the cake, putting the final layer upside down helps to achieve a flat top. Tip 2: You can tell the cakes are done when the sponges are light, springy, golden and shrinking away from the edge of the tins a little. Tip 3: Instead of using a plate, use a cake board or chopping board with a square of baking paper to sit your cake on while you assemble it. This makes it easy to work on and get in and out of the fridge. Tip 4: Depending on what chocolate treat you are using for the topping, you might like to break them up into little pieces to show the colour of the middle. If you are using larger chocolate bars, it’s really effective to cut these into tall shards and use them to create height on the top of your cake for a dramatic effect. Tip 5: When you are adding your drips, you can use a spoon to encourage the chocolate to fall further down the side of the cake, and remember it looks great if the drips are random lengths.
