What are you most proud of? This is only the third time in my life I have baked a cake. When I shared it with my team at the office they were convinced I had bought it. I gushed at the compliments people paid me. I will definately be baking this one again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You MUST view Alice's video at least 3 times, there are nuisances in baking this cake and she gives you all the tips. Make sure you allow plenty of time to prepare and bake it. From start to finish, I spent a total of 6 hours (well worth it). Lastly, this do NOT buy cheap chocolate you simply won't get the same results. This is NOT a cake to waste on a small child. I would rate it as an adult cake because of it is rich in taste and texture and would be a waste of money giving it to a child.

Thanks to Alice Medrich's course I feel like an accomplished baker. This is only the 3rd cake I have ever baked in my life. It tasted as good as it looked, and my colleagues at the office were blown over.

I want to make this the next time around. I began with the beginner cake, the queen of sheba - my white chocolate and milk chocolate wouldn't melt to a liquid consistency. I loved how yours came out perfectly. And yes, it is very sinfully RICH!
