Flourless chocolate cake is ideal for special occasions. Its fudge, gooey, chocolate lovers heaven in every bite. You can "fancy" it up with simple tricks to decorate the top too!
Place cake on baking sheet . Spread 1/2-cup glaze smoothly on top and sides.
Make glaze by adding melting chocolate and corn syrup until blended in a small sauce pan. Allow to cool for 5 mins, then spread 1/2-cup glaze smoothly on top and sides.
Pour remaining glaze over top smooth sides and top.
If making white squiggles as pictured you will mix whipping cream and powdered sugar in a bowl until blended, then place it in pastry bag or ( zip lock bag butting off a small tip) to pipe. Decorate as desired while second coat of glaze is still liquid. Place cake on platter and chill until the glaze is set, about an hour.
To make the design of the cake shown you will take 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup whipping cream and mix to get a frosting. Place in a piping bag or in a zip lock back and then cut the corner tip off to pipe out frosting.
Starting at the center in one continuous circle pipe out a spiral going from small to large (about 1/4" apart each line ) until you have a spiral on the entire top of the cake. You want to do this immediately after placing the glaze on the cake so that you can then pull on the white frosting thru the chocolate glaze to get the design.
You then use a tooth pick to draw from the center to the edge in equal distance. Once you have gone all the way around the cake you then come back and in between each line you have already drawn you go from the edge of the cake to the center. This will give you the squiggle effect and the small flower at the center.
