wow, really 300mls of cream to 250gms of chocolate? I only use 1/3c of cream to 250gms of chocolate.

This is a filling I like to use:
100gms dark choc
125gm butter
1 1/2c icing sugar
1tsp vanilla essence
1 egg yolk
Melt choc and cool slightly.
Cream butter, icing sugar and vanilla together. Add egg yolk and melted chocolate. Beat until fluffy.

I then like to use a ganache to top my cake.
