Cut the two cakes once across, so I have 4 slices! And now cut 5 even rings with an adjustable back-up ring. From light dough as well as dark dough. And now it's time to put the cake together. The liquid butter is ready with a brush.
To be on the safe side, I put the rings in the baking pan so it's easier. The first ring (big ring on the outside) I take the dark cake, then a smaller, light ring, then another dark ring, etc. The first row is now, I brush it with liquid butter (next time I'll use a chocolate cream because it lasts better)
So now the second layer, now I have to take a bright, large ring on the outside, almost against, this is how the chessboard pattern is created. Keep layering until all rings are used up. Brush with butter or cream again and again to give this cake a hold. Done ! Finally cover with the melted couverture.
As a contrast, sprinkle with white chocolate sprinkles and pink sugar hearts. My daughter-in-law and I baked this cake together, for the first time, we were curious to see what or how it might turn out. Well, there have been small mishaps from time to time, but that's how you learn, as is well known. It was a fun experience, and with a lot of joy and laughter, a great result came on the cake plate.
I thank my daughter-in-law for that. I hope I was able to describe the steps reasonably well. Thanks for the time you took to read it. Your Uschi
