26-28cm in diameter
Heavy cream (32% fat)
700 ml
200ml for cream and 500ml for decoration
White chocolate
250 g
Cream Cheese
250 g

Step by step


Prepare the sponge cake in advance, or purchase one. Slice it into 3 thin layers.


Soak the gelatin in 100 ml of water for about 10 minutes. Heat and stir until dissolved, ensuring it doesn't boil. Let it cool.


In a thick-bottomed saucepan, pour in 200ml of heavy cream. Add the broken white chocolate and heat, stirring until the chocolate has completely melted.


Achieve a consistent color and texture.


Add the cream cheese, mixing well to eliminate lumps.


In a separate bowl, combine 2-3 tablespoons of cream with the cooled gelatin from step 2.


Pour this mixture back into the saucepan with the cream, mixing well.


Refrigerate the cream to cool and thicken. To hasten the process, place it in the freezer, stirring every 20 minutes.


After a few hours, the cream will thicken. Stir periodically to check the consistency.


Place the first layer of sponge cake on a cake tray. Put baking paper under the edges to prevent the plate from getting dirty while decorating the cake.


Optionally, lightly syrup the cake layers. Mix honey with warm water and a touch of almond essence.


Spread 1/3 of the cream on the first layer.


Syrup the other sponge cake layers. Reserve 1-2 tablespoons of cream for coating the cake and top.


Coat the cake and top with a thin layer of cream. Refrigerate and garnish after a few hours. Decorate with whipped cream or double the amount of white chocolate cream for garnishing.


Prepare the whipped cream using your preferred method.


Coat the cake evenly, on top and along the edges. Optionally, create cream decorations with a piping bag. You may also use almond slices or coconut for additional decoration.


Serve a slice of this exquisite, delicious, and flavorful cake.
