We begin with the preparation of the bases, and for this purpose we need three separate bowls. In a mixed flour with cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. In the second beat eggs with sugar and vanilla. And in the third milk and the oil. Add the milk mixture to the one with eggs and continue to mix. Gradually add this mixture to the dry ingredients into the first bowl, stirring with a spatula. Now is the time to have added a cup of warm water. Prepared nice deep-cocoa mixture, which I distributed into four pans with a diameter of 20 cm. The Bake them in a preheated oven at 170C degrees for about 35 minutes or until a wooden stick pinned in their center comes out dry. baked bases allow to cool completely, and proceed to the preparation of the cream. I recommend to start with making chocolate cream, as in my opinion it takes him longer to tighten, but as the recipe is new for me, I'm going to describe it in the original layout. In bowl, beat the cottage cheese with powdered sugar, and in another court - cream. obtained an extremely fluffy and voluminous mixture should fill in Posh and aside (or refrigerate) until assembling the cake. In bowl put the cream and leave on the stove until just before boiling mixture. Then add the broken chocolate and the butter. Ghana cool down again put in Posh and leave to harden in the refrigerator. The assembly of the cake in the following way. The first base is irrigated with good coffee and when I say good, put generous. Then, starting with one cream, make a circle around the base, and then do the other concentric circle, and strive to be equal in size and height to allow us to obtain the desired pattern. So proceed to the end, as the next base pay under the two cream. The rest work on the cake was related to plastering her, which used the rest of the white cream, it was not less, and chocolate Ghana. The alignment of some of the bases I remained small pieces that shattered and polepih the countries.

If I have a chance tomorrow will shoot cut piece :)

Magnificent cake! (I knew) :) mimetics, many thanks for shared recipe!

There is some discrepancy with the original recipe and creams. Deliberately or is it a pass. I ask because I want to do but do not know whether the absence of certain ingredients will. :)

No pass just swapped cream cheese curd, and gelatine not added because the cream is sufficiently thick. In ganasha slowed chocolate of 200 grams for not very bitter cream and added glucose.

Well thank you very much :)

mimetics, home has become a tradition to prepare this cake for birthday :) And because I get so tomorrow we will celebrate two birthdays at once (my father and my husband), I decided not to make two cakes, but only one (I'm an gabrovka), only that it is on two floors :) This time my latter must not be the same as the recipe (sponge are), but Promising next time to finally make them :)
