place the aluminum tin into the pressure cooker (I used contura pressure cooker). Close lid and reduce heat to low and cook for 40 mins to 1 hour for the cake to be done.

Check it after 40 minutes by inserting a wooden toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean, your cake is done, otherwise cook for some more time.Turn off heat and do not open the lid for 5 mts. After 5 mts remove the pressure cooker lid and carefully remove the aluminum pan.

Let cool completely before covering with frosting.

Keep the mixture in the refrigerator for 10-15 mins and then apply it on the cake using a spatula.

To assemble the cake, place one of the cake layers on a serving platter.  Top with 1 cup of the chocolate frosting and smooth over the top of the cake.

Decorate it with silver balls or gems and crush cashew nuts on top of cake.
