Whispers chocolate cake


I made this cake for colleague’s birthday.

I really wanted to try and make this cake for eons and eons, but it seemed so complicated.

Then I was reading Lorraine Pascale’s book and she had a tutorial on how to assemble the cake.

It was really easy, the most difficult part I found was the actual cutting, seeing as I cannot cut straight to save my life.

I also used my famous eggless chocolate cake recipe seeing as we have a vegetarian in the house.


  • 2 x round chocolate cakes.
  • Chocolate butter cream icing.
  • A slab of milk Lindt chocolate.
  • Gold dust.


  • Ice the two layers of cake together.
  • Crumb coat the cake and pop into the fridge to set.
  • Ice the entire cake with a generous layer of chocolate icing.
  • First make a centre row of whispers on the cake and then make rows working from the centre to the end of one side and then do the same the other side.
  • Add pieces of chocolate slab into the cake.
  • Finally dust the finished cake with gold dust.
  • Pop into the fridge to chill for about 10 minutes.
