This recipe is designed to form part of a tower of desserts, a great cake recipe for your wedding.
Cook’s note: Acetate cake bands are used to line dessert moulds and rings, to prevent food from sticking. Cocoa butter-printed acetate bands, also known as chocolate transfers, are flexible acetate sheets coated with a mixture of cocoa butter and food colouring, etched with repetitive designs. They come in a wide variety of designs and colours. When melted chocolate is spread over the sheets and allowed to chill until firm, the plastic sheets are peeled away, leaving an edible design on the chocolate's surface. Transfer sheets may be used with any type of chocolate. You can buy both acetate cake bands and cocoa butter-printed bands from cake decorating shops or online.
