How to prepare the cake?

1) First, roughly crush the cookies into pieces and set aside. In a bain-marie, melt the chocolate, butter, cocoa powder and cream, adding them one by one. Remove once all the chocolate is melted and add it to the cookies. Mix them with a spatula and make sure that the cookie pieces are all well coated with chocolate. In a spring-bottomed cake tin, place parchment paper.

2) Now put all the chocolate mixture on it and press well so that it settles properly. You can also tap the cake pan on the kitchen table for additional setting. Place the cake in the refrigerator and it should take 30 minutes to set.

3) During this time, you can start preparing the filling. Melt more chocolate and add cream to it. Once the chocolate has melted, remove it from the boiler. Take the cake tin out of the fridge. Pour the chocolate icing on it and spread it well. Tap the cake pan on the kitchen counter again so that the frosting settles between the cracks in the cookies. You need to keep the cake in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

4) Mix whipped cream and sugar. Whip them until stiff and fill a piping bag with this cream. Remove the cake pan from the refrigerator, then you need to release the spring-loaded base to take the cake out of the pan. Place it on a tray or cake stand (whatever you have). For garnish ? use whipped cream, cherries, mint leaves and a few chocolate shavings. Slice the cake and enjoy your weekend.
