  • Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. Melt cocoa butter. Drizzle or pipe over the paper and let harden in the fridge. Melt the dark chocolate and spread over top of the hardened cocoa butter. Let set in the fridge and cut into pieces.

Assembly: Cut cake in half and spread chocolate ganache between layers. Coat entire cake with icing. Line edges with chocolate tiles or as desired.
