This Valentine’s Day chocolate cake was designed by my 9-year old son (who is now almost 20). He even instructed me on how I should put it together. His plan was to bake a sheet of cake and cut the layers with a heart shaped cookie cutter. Then stack them together with raspberry cream and pour a glossy chocolate ganache over the top. I know I’m biased, but I think he is brilliant. You can watch me make the cake in my Instagram video.
Happy Valentine’s to my two sons, Henri and Charlie, and my husband Graham. My 3 muses.
