Accessories you need



DO NOT use a spring form cake tin. The cake mixture is thin and will seep through the base.
Berries added to the whipped cream in the centre of the cake goes well.
For a lighter ganache use milk chocolate and reduce the cream down to 100g.
The cake must be completely cooled before assembling.

For a single cake use a deep tin. The cake rises almost 10 cm
