The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Prince William's Chocolate Cake!

Category: Desserts  |  Permalink

Published: Thursday, May 12, 2011

CHOCOLATE BISCUIT CAKE

4oz dark chocolate (for the cake, not nibbles)

4oz granulated sugar

4oz unsalted butter

1 egg

8oz Rich Tea biscuits

½ tsp butter

8oz dark chocolate (for the coating)

1oz chocolate (for decoration)

Lightly grease a 6in x 21⁄2in cake ring and place on a tray on a sheet of parchment paper.

Break the biscuits into almond-size pieces and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until the mixture lightens. Melt 4oz of chocolate and add to the butter mix while stirring. Beat in the egg.

Fold in the biscuits until they are coated with chocolate mix. Spoon into the cake ring. Try to fill all of the gaps on the bottom. Chill the cake in the refrigerator for at least three hours, then let it stand while you melt the 8oz of chocolate.

Slide the ring off the cake and turn it upside down on to a cake wire. Pour the chocolate over and smooth the top and sides with a palette knife. Set at room temperature. Run a knife around the bottom and lift it on to a tea plate. Melt the 1oz of chocolate and use to decorate the top.

Serves eight.

Dear Scribbler: Sweet Biscuits in England are generally made with wheat flour or oats and sweetened with sugar or honey. They have varieties which contain chocolate, fruit, jam or nuts. There is usually a deidcated section for sweet biscuits in most European supermarkets. The AMERICAN version would be a shortbread cookie. Do let us know if you make this wonderful cake! Your Divas of Good Taste, Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke

Rich Tea Biscuits are McVittie's Chocolate Biscuits. Found in US grocery stores. You could use Shortbread Cookies. Let us know how your cake turns out? Cate

This looks scrumptious, but I was wondering what are "Rich Tea Biscuits?" Something like lady fingers or shortbread? I would like to try this.
