Chocolate Fudge Cake!

I don't actually have a recipe to post with this photo as such, I made it using a standard 8oz sponge recipe and added cocoa and buttermilk, baked in two 8 inch sandwich tins for 25 mins.

The filling and topping is made with 100g dark chocolate (melted)
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
300g icing sugar
150g butter
2 tablespoons buttermilk

mixed altogether until you have a smooth icing.

spread over the top of one of the sponge cakes, then top with the other and spread the rest of the mixture over the top and sides.

Decorate with flakes or any other chocolate decorations.

I also brushed each sponge with sugar syrup before topping with the icing.
