If I use a serrated knife, won't that not be small enough? When I use the grater, it looks almost like chocolate dust. Though I honestly don't know what the purpose of grating it was. The cake turned out good, either way...

If you shave it close it will be very fine. It is easier than it sounds. You could also use a dish towel to hold it so the heat from your hand doesn't melt it as much.

I have a shredder from Pampered Chef {$$$} It does fine shredding at works great for chocolate or cheeses.
And it does do better when you use whatever to shred when the chocolate is frozen.

Chocolate needs to be well chilled. Then it's easy to shave into thin curls with a knife or use the ribbon grater on a Microplane.

I pop choc into the freezer for 10 mins or so (I keep any choc in the house in the fridge anyway as I only like chilled choc and my family have the same foible cos that's the way they were used to eating it as children!) - I then use the coarse grate side of a box grater.. works well for me.
