Finishing touches:

Once cooled down tip the cake upside down onto serving plate and dust with icing sugar.

Alternatively you might like to make a chocolate ganache topping… I love using white chocolate and a little cream melted together and then spread carefully on top. The contrast in colour looks nice and the taste is simply delicious.
