  3. Put the cream in the refrigerator and let it harden
  4. In the meantime, take the now cold sponge cake and cut it into three layers with a knife.
  5. Transfer the first layer to a steel hinged mould,coated with acetate sheets
  6. Wet the first disc of sponge cake with the soak you made
  7. Take a third of the mascarpone and coffee cream and distribute it on the surface, levelling it with a spatula and adding a little chopped dark chocolate
  8. Cover with the second disc of sponge cake and then wet
  9. Spread out half of the remaining cream
  10. Cover with the third disc and then wet
  11. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 6 hours (or overnight)
