For the chocolate pudding

35g cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g sugar
40g cornstarch, sifted
1 vanilla bean
950ml single cream
55g chocolate (recommended: Manjari)

For the devil's food cake

3 eggs
350g sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
240ml mayonnaise
310g pastry flour, sifted
1 1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder, sifted
35g cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 tsp salt, sifted
240ml water

For the candied rose petals

10 rose petals
2 egg whites
100g granulated sugar
Whipped cream, for serving
1) For the chocolate pudding: sift the first 5 ingredients into the cold single cream, whisk well to homogenize. Begin to heat while stirring constantly to 80 degrees C. Add chocolate and cook, stirring, for 1 full minute. Pass through a strainer and pour directly into dishes already containing the devils food cake pieces, then place plastic wrap directly on surface. Cool immediately in refrigerator.

2) Make the devil's food cake: preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

3) In a mixing bowl with the whip, whisk the eggs and sugar until it reaches the ribbon stage. Whisk in the vanilla extract and mayonnaise. Add the dry ingredients alternating with the water. Mix only until combined. Do not over mix. Spread onto a quarter size sheet tray which has been sprayed with nonstick spray.

4) The cake is ready when it springs back when touched. When cooled, use a circular cookie cutter and cut out circles to place in the bottom of molds. Make the depth of the cake approximately 1/2 the depth of your molds.

5) Make the rose petals: heat your oven to 90 degrees C.

6) Brush petals in egg whites, remove excess white and dredge in granulated sugar. Place petals on a sheet tray and insert into the oven. Turn the oven off and allow them to crisp but not color. Break into pieces reserving the best looking ones for garnish.

7) Assemble: place fresh whipped cream on top of the devil's food cake covered with chocolate pudding; then garnish with candied rose petals.
