This rescipe is for the small chocolate cake in the photo. They have had their bottoms dipped in white chocolate, topped with a chocolate flavored butter cream, and a white and dark chocolate curl.

I’m sorry about the European measurements. These recipes are copied straight from my notes in my individual production pastry class. If you would like to convert the measurements, i recommended using this conversions calculator: southernfood.about.com/...blconv.htm
