There's something magical about the sinful decadence of baked chocolate goods that makes a celebration feel almost incomplete without the consumption of it.

Trendy flavours have come and gone but this one will always remain a classic. Out of all the variations, a thickly spread layer of rich caramel sandwiched between two fluffy layers of cocoa flavoured cake has always been my favourite. Other popular versions include chocolate mousse cake, ganache frosted, chocolate bundt cake and of course molten chocolate cake.

A simple chocolate cake is definitely one bake to master before you die. Out of the hundreds of tips that exist, we'd say these three are most important:

1. Read and follow your recipe carefully.

2. Use the best quality ingredients.

3. Resist the temptation to open the oven door every ten minutes and keep it closed until baked almost completely.
