Assembling of cakes:

  • Let the cakes cool.
  • Cut both the caked horizontally in almost same size.Now you have 4 cake discs.2 chocolate and 2 vanilla.
  • Find 2 round shaped moulds to cut the cake.(I used one round tiffin box and one glass.)
  • Carefully keep the large mould(tiffin box)in the centre of the one cake disc.
  • Cut it in to a circle by using a knife.
  • Now use small mould (glass) and make another circle in the middle of the remaining portion.
  • Use the same method for all the cake disc.
  • Now totally you have 12 round pieces of cakes.
  • Take a plate with butter paper.
  • First arrange a chocolate round.(big one)
  • Inside the chocolate round arrange vanilla round(medium)
  • Arrange small chocolate ring in the middle.
  • Apply a thin layer of frosting to fix the three rings.
  • Now first outer layer should be vanilla.
  • Then medium chocolate ring.
  • Arrange small vanilla ring in the centre.
  • Apply thin layer of frosting.
  • Likewise finish all the rings by arranging alternatively.
  • Apply frosting all over the cake.
  • Keep it in fridge before cut it in to piece(I skipped this step so I lost the perfection also...)
