Chocolate Chilli Cake

I think I have a new favourite cake. A friend of mine commissioned a chocolate chilli cake last week, and gave me a few ideas as to how to decorate it. I'm really pleased with the look of the cake, and she tells me it tasted pretty awesome too, so thumbs up all round. I'm excited about how this can be adapted with other flavours, and can't wait to try out some other ideas. 

This version is a chocolate mud cake, filled with chocolate ganache, coated in vanilla buttercream and decorated with melted dark chocolate. I made some marbled chilli chocolate shards to stand at the back, and on the side of the cake, and decorated the top with some posh chocs from Montezuma's, and edible glitter.
