This cake will certainly appeal to all fans of chocolate, as well as lovers of timeless classics Ferrero Rocher.
I must admit, variations on the theme "Cake Ferrero» set, and they certainly have their own nuances, different parts, and even feed ingredients in the composition. And only one thing remains unchanged - the chocolate taste and decorating chocolates Ferrero Rocher (usually :).
I want to offer you my interpretation of the cake: a light sponge cake that melts in your mouth, delicate chocolate mousse (layer) and chocolate-hazelnut ganache (cover).
I think extol cake Ferrero does not make sense, I would only say that I do not know those whom he had not won :)
Degree of difficulty, as for me - starting. So, do not be afraid, go for it!
