Melt your chocolate and set aside to cool a bit- I always melt the chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water ( make sure it is still runny) – (Image 8436)

Cut the tops off the cakes and sandwich together with your baby pink icing and strawberry jam
Then cover the whole cake with your pink icing until you cannot see the cake inside
Scoop your cooled chocolate into another icing bag and drizzle over the sides of the cake to make chocolate droplets down the side and then ice a circle of chocolate in the middle of the top
Place your white icing in a piping bag

Pipe on the white icing around the top of the cake inside the circle of chocolate and into the middle
Pipe around the bottom of the cake to finish it off
