When we ordered this dessert at the Chique de Belém cafe in Belém, we had no idea what it was, but how can you turn down what appeared to be a chocolate cake covered in chocolate? A Pirâmide is obviously named for its pyramid shape and consists of chocolate cake with nuts and raisins or candied fruit, covered with a shell of dark chocolate and a cherry. Pirâmides can be made with other cakes than chocolate as well. I guess it is a good way to use up leftover cake (though when would that happen in this household?). Here is a recipe – in Portuguese – to make pirâmides.
