Looking for a Father’s Day Showstopper?  Here’s just the cake – a White Chocolate Mud Cake with white chocolate frosting wrapped with a chocolate collar and topped with fresh juicy British strawberries!

A big thank you goes to Jess Taylor who inspired me over on facebook to create this this week, and whilst my Dad doesn’t have a sweet tooth so won’t appreciate a big slice, he has been in the kitchen with me whilst I made it.

I know I’m going to be working on a fair few projects in the coming months using this glaze so here’s the recipe.
