Chocolate for my Valentine

I've been intrigued by this "Valentine's Sweetheart Cake" for awhile.  The cake is flourless chocolate and the ganache contains coconut milk, saffron, chile, rosewater, and several other intriguing ingredients. 

I don't love chocolate.  My valentine on the other hand, does.  What a perfect fit!  I personally was more excited about my red fondant flower for the top.  It measured about six inches in diameter, and was quite stunning.

In flavor, his certainly is a cake for chocolate lovers.  It's a big, dense, slap-in-the face of chocolate.  Though even non-chocolate lovers (me) can appreciate its bold assertion of that which is chocolate.
