  6. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 15-20 mins. Remove from the pan and cool on a wire rack.
  7. Make the ganache by melting the cream and the chocolate in a saucepan, stir until completely melted, allow it to cool to at least room temperature or place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  8. Whip the ganache with an electric mixer on high until it becomes lighter in colour with a beautifully aerated texture.
  9. Slice the cake into 3 layers and place the ganache between the layers and finish with a final layer on top.
