I had quite a few 21st birthday cakes to make this year. This was for 2 girls who worked in the same office and were having a joint party. It is 2-tiers of chocolate cake, drizzled with cointreau and orange juice and layered with chocolate ganache and orange curd. It had a chocolate ganache coating and piped edging and then milk and white chocolate dipped strawberries arranged alternately round the edges and piled on top. And a chocolate plaque with the names of the birthday girls.
