Chocolate Cake with Mascarpone and White Chocolate Topping
The topping for this dark chocolate cake is a very firm favourite in Louise's family. It has topped and filled many, many cakes, particularly birthday cakes, often decorated with a toy animal or two. If you add a little milk or dark chocolate to the mix you can create a 'muddy field' with a horse galloping across. Double the quantities for the topping if you want to make a large cake, or if you wish to fill and top it.
