Tips for a perfect cake layers

Some small recommendations to prepare a chocolate cake pistachio mascarpone and red fruits perfect. I spread the sponge cake in a baking sheet and use the ring of a 15 cm cake pan to obtain three discs to mount the cake. If you want to make a bigger cake, use two baking plates obtained from the first two albums and one from the second. So you have enough leftovers to blend to decorate the cake (the doses that we do are for a cake from 18 cm).

Wet abundantly the discs of bread of Spain, because the cakes should melt in your mouth and be soft and moist. Caution not to tilt too much cake while you cover the sides with crumbs of bread of Spain. Be patient and let them adhere slowly with the back of a spatula or spoon.
