need a recipe for a decadent cake or dessert cake to serve 15 people . I need to make the cake today (as I am working all day tomorrow) but its for tomorrow night. I'm sure there is probably already something on here but I dont have time to look !

this isnt a cake as such, its a chocolate tart. But its absolutely beatiful. Its very very rich, so you dont need alot. For 15 people I would maybe double the recipe and do it in a large dish. Serve with whipped cream and ice cream. YUM! !

Mmmm. I must have been doing things wrong because I have never had a success by doubling cakey type recipes unless I cooked them as two separate cakes.

You could double if you were making a fruit pie though, however, fruit pies are not really decadent unless you make your pastry from the yolks and make a meringue from the leftover egg whites. I find that custard type pies (e. g. lemon or chocolate tart) don't turn out so well unless cooked in two separate normal sized pie dishes.

If I feel like really going all out I actually just make my meringue more of a pavlova, cook it separately and put on top of my open top pie.
