Decorating Tips: For a sleek, professional finish, ensure the top layer of sponge is smooth and even before glazing. Once the chocolate frosting is set, you can dust the slices with powdered sugar or drizzle them with white chocolate for a contrasting look. Serving them on a decorative plate with a light dusting of cocoa powder can also enhance their visual appeal.

Ingredients:

  • Sponge cake:
    • 4 eggs
    • 10 g of vanilla sugar
    • 120 g of sugar
    • A pinch of salt
    • 2 tablespoons of water
    • 80 g of flour
    • 40 g cocoa powder
    • 7 g of baking powder
  • Cream filling:
    • 250 g mascarpone (can replace with cottage cheese or ricotta)
    • 150 g of sugar + 20 g of honey
    • 300 ml cream (30% fat or more)
    • 10 g of gelatin + 60 ml of cold water
  • Icing:
    • 80 g of chocolate
    • 40 g of unsalted butter

Instructions:

  1. Sponge cake: Beat the eggs with the sugar, vanilla sugar and salt until the volume increases (about 5 minutes). Add the sifted dry ingredients and water, mixing to obtain a smooth paste. Spread evenly on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven at 180°C for 15-20 minutes. Use a skewer to check doneness. Cool and cut the biscuit into two equal parts.
  2. Cream filling: Whisk the mascarpone with the honey and sugar. In another bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks. Soften the gelatin in cold water, heat slightly in the microwave, then add to the mascarpone mixture. Mix carefully to avoid lumps.
  3. Assembly: Spread the cream on one half of the biscuit, then cover with the other half. Smooth the edges with a spatula. Refrigerate overnight to set. Trim the edges for a neat appearance.
  4. Icing: Melt the chocolate with the butter and spread over the top of the cake. Refrigerate until set. Cut into slices before serving.
