8.      On top of the cake, apply a little cream uniformly. Not forgetting the sides as well. You can use a cake stand or a plate.
9.      Put the beaten cream that was remaining in a tube and make use of a decorative syringe. Decorate the vegan chocolate cake using the cream in the tube.
10.  Take the whole cherries and place them on top of the cake. Add as many as you wish to make the cake look neat
11.  Take the grated chocolate and sprinkle it all over the cake, including the sides. You may also add a little chocolate shaving on the top.
12.  Use a big bowl to cover up the vegan chocolate cake, ensuring that it does not touch the sides.
13.  Put the cake inside the fridge for 3 hours or for the night so that cream icing can set.
14.  Once cream icing has hardened properly, it is now time to cut and eat the vegan chocolate cake.
