- Add the boiling water, little at a time, until smooth..
- Divide the batter between two cake tins, and bake for 25-35 minutes..
- Meanwhile make the icing: heat the chocolate and cream in a saucepan over low heat until chocolate melts. Remove it from heat, and whisk until smooth and thick. Set aside to cool for about 2 hours, or until thick enough to spread. My partner skipped this step, and just poured it over the cake! Still yummy though!.
- Remove from oven, and let cool completely before icing it! To ice, remove the cakes from the tins. Either pour or spread a little icing on the top of one of the cakes, then carefully top it with the other cake. Finally, cover the entire cake with icing and serve!.
