Artisanal chocolate cake specialists these days are a dime and a dozen, and while I can't quite differentiate one from the other, I'm more than happy with the mind-boggling choices. Matt's the Chocolate Shop at Amoy Street is one of two in the CBD, where chocolate is apparently the antithesis to the stress of the daily grind.
The Whole Dark Chocolate Fudge ($50 for 8.5" 1kg cake for >10pax) is a mass of gloriously dark chocolate fudge layered with dense chocolate sponge, and draped with a luscious chocolate ganache. Heavenly stuff!
