Paul describes this simple chocolate cake as his dream wedding cake and we can see why! Not only does it look beautiful, but it uses white, milk and dark chocolate ganache with a touch of Baileys…truly decadent! This is a very simple cake to make, is perfect for a number of occasions and easy to adapt throughout the year by using seasonal fruit and foliage, making it a very versatile design.
