No, its not an Olympic sport, but a cake-decorating method that even the professionals use from time to time! If youre baking a Cherry Cake, a Fruit Cake or even a Chocolate Cake, chocolate-dipped morsels make an adorable topping.

* Simply melt a block of good cooking chocolate in a bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water.

* Wash and dry a selection of fruit (cherries, strawberries and grapes are good) or nuts (big ones like Brazils or pecans), then, using a cocktail stick, dip the pieces one at a time.

* Experiment using your instinct: try dipping Brazils in dark chocolate and cherries in white chocolate, or even double-dipping leave to set after the first dip, then dip into a different chocolate for a stunning finish.

* Sift icing sugar over the top of your cake, and top with the dipped fruit.
