Portuguese Pastry Post-Doc: Pirâmide

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.
