Many of my cakes are sold to individuals with high-end taste and pocket books, and this one received, if possible, higher raves than any I've made thus far. Worth a review for sure. Used Drambuie instead of water, but I presume Kahlua or other liquor would work just as well. Only use Ghirardelli. No question I prefer an 8" spring form pan; produces a slightly higher (thinker) result. Made a Raspberry Coulis from Emeril's website, but used frozen raspberries instead of fresh. Worked perfectly. Drizzled that onto a plate and placed 1/16 of cake onto it. Dotted with slightly sweetened whipped cream, 1/2 of mint chocolate-filled mint flavoured Pirouette (Pepperidge Farm) cookie on top, a couple of fresh raspberries and a fresh mint leaf. And voila, an unbelievable experience. My client served this to the President of Ukraine's wife and entourage, and they were blown away. Oh, and just follow the rest of the recipe and you can't go wrong. Easy. Definitely worth a try, even if you just eat it "nuked" with some vanilla ice cream as a previous reviewer suggested...delicious.
