I use cream and chcolate in 1:2 ration. If you use 100ml of cream use 200g of chocolate.

Bring the cream upto the boiling point and then take it out off the heat and add to the chocolate ( in a bowl) then mix it well. You can use it straight away, like pour it over the cake. Or you can leave it cool down and then it will become to a paste consistancy. You can cover the cake with it and then leave it go hard, then use a palette knife dipped in hot water, dry the water with a paper towel and smooth the top of the cake. The heat of the knife gives it a smooth surface.
