Cake Collection:

Currant stuffing divided into two equal parts, between the fluff cakes, cake on top to pour glaze and fluff on the sides of the cake. On top decorate with chocolate shavings and grated nuts. Hide in the refrigerator overnight.

The cake should have a good soak, but next time, I decided to add to the glaze of powdered sugar less, it seems to me 500 grams should be sufficient, but who like sweeter, and all can be 750 grams.

Bon Appetit!
