The other thing that we find interesting and valuable about this recipe is the fact that Cenk's cake was originally what he called an "Ugly Duckling." It's a typical flourless chocolate cake: a little lumpy, a little cracked. Nothing pretty.
But he made a lacquer chocolate glaze and he shows step-by-step photos of enrobing the cake in this beautiful shiny coating. It makes the cake much prettier — a fabulous centerpiece for a dessert table. Take a look, and get your chocolate fix.
