Comments
This cake can be greatly enchanced and made into something purely stellar in appearance and taste using chocolate granache for the filling and then continue to use this recipe's icing for the outside layer.
This is rich and truly Italian and acutally an easy cake to make. Enjoy it with hot rich coffee.
