    This was a lot of work but so worth it for a special occasion. It looks great and the combination of a moist chocolate cake, chocolate mousse, chocolate ganache and salted chocolate shards is a dream dessert for any chocoholic. Don't feel tempted to skip the shards on top - the salted chocolate is fantastic.

    Fantastic cake! Chosen by my son as his birthday cake based on the book's cover photo, it was everything we hoped it would be: a little short by North American standards but quite sophisticated with components that could be made over several days. The glaze was a little thinner and took longer to set than a typical ganache with most of it just pouring off the cake during the first application but it worked the second time once I'd allowed it to thicken a little. My son requested a "ferrero rocher" cake so I added hazelnut flavouring to the cake, nutella to the filling and crushed hazelnut praline to chocolate shards.
