  1. Firstly, make sure you've soaked your pitted dates. To do this place them in a cup covered with water and leave overnight or for at least a few hours. 
  2. Place all the cake ingredients into a food processor and whizz everything until it's properly mixed together and the mixture starts to form a dough. 
  3. Then make sure your cake tin is lined with baking paper, then pour this mixture into it. Press the mixture down with the back of a wooden spoon, or your hands.
  4. Place cake in freezer while you make the top layer. 
  5. For the top layer, put all the ingredients for this into a blender and whizz until a smooth mixture forms. Remove the cake part from the freezer and pour this on top. 
  6. Pop it back into the freezer and let it set for a minimum of 2 hours. 
  7. Once set, carefully remove the cake from the tin and add any additional toppings, such as using a sieve to dust it with extra cacao powder. 
  8. Keep the cake in the fridge until ready to serve and enjoy!
