In a mixing bowl, beat the butter until smooth and creamy.
Add the icing sugar, milk, and vanilla essence.
Mix until well combined.
Once cake has cooled, spread the frosting between the layers of cake.
Top the cake with more frosting.
Use a palette knife to add a thin layer of frosting around the sides of the cake.
To create the "naked" effect, remove any excess frosting with the palette knife or cake scraper to expose the cake in small areas.
Once the cake has been frosted, gently melt the chocolate in a small bowl and mix in the food colouring.
Pour this chocolate mixture over the top of the cake, allowing it to run down the sides.
Top with fresh flowers and/or fruits and enjoy!
