  1. I ordered Delices & Gourmandises chocolate cake twice this month, it was exactly the same as in the picture. Great and tasty ! I tried to make one but I had trouble with the frosting which was a bit too chocolately, I should have added more cream. Thanks for the recipe !

  2. Very nice recipe ! Moist, fluffy and chocolaty. I also enjoy the frosting, the best ever 🙂 Delices & Gourmandises Catalan cream tart is also great but didn’t find the recipe. For sure all Delices Gourmandises pastries are made by master baker. Yum!
