For the Biscuit dough:

First separate the eggs and beat the yolks with 120g of sugar, until it becomes a thick-crumbly mass. Then beat the egg white, salt, and the remaining sugar stiff adding the ice cream in the end. Then flour and cocoa powder are blended and sieved. Carefully stir all these ingredients.

The mass should now be smoothly placed on a buttered and floured 26er jump form. Allow it to bake at 180 ° C for about 35-40 min, then let it cool and remove it from the mold. Once completely cooled, cut the biscuit 2x horizontally.

For the light cream, chop white covertures and heat a mug of cream. (Caution, the cream should not boil!) Dissolve the covertures in it and leave to rest for 2 hours in the refrigerator. Afterwards, mix it with the blender for about 4 minutes until it becomes very creamy. Soak, squeeze, heat and stir the gelatin.

For the dark cream, crush the covertures with the (caution, that the cream does not boil) cinnamon and espresso. Place it for 2 hours in the refrigerator and then mix it for 4 min with the mixer. Add the butter and cream.

To make the lower biscuit cake ring – first apply the light cream. After everything is distributed evenly, place the second floor over it and spread the dark cream on it. Then place the last bottom on top and place the whole cake in the refrigerator for 4 hours.

Sprinkle the cream and spread it around the outside of the cake. Put some of it in a spray bag with some polka dots and decorate them with a fork. You can then continue to decorate the cake with cocoa powder or chocolate chips.

Tip: Prepare the best cake in the evening and leave it in the refrigerator overnight, then the next day it can be consumed freshly for dessert.

Ready. Enjoy!
