How to make this cake…

Important tip

You can use either a springform pan or just a ring cake mold. Butter the walls internally and cover the perimeters with parchment paper. Make sure the paper is higher than the height of the mold because if the amount of the third mousse is more than what the mold can fit, then the parchment paper can hold the extra mousse in place. In my case, unfortunately it took only half of the white chocolate mixture. Indicatively, the dimensions of the heart hoop that I used are horizontally 40 cm and vertically 30 cm. Of course, you can use any mold you want with any shape and also the cake is not only for Valentine’s day. It is so delicious that you will make it again and again!
