    TempR's Note:

    From Luscious Chocolate Desserts by Lori Longbotham. I find choc truffle cakes too dense so was happy to find this and to realise I could make it for Passover. She suggests trying the alternating layers of cocoa and confectioners' sugar to decorate other desserts as it's "simple but stunning".
