METHOD
METHOD - SWEET CACAO PASTE
In a kitchen aid, mix the flour, cacao powder, salt and creamy butter and mix slowly. Add the icing sugar, almond flour, and eggs. Mix slowly until obtaining a homogenous mix. Do not overmix. Let it rest at least for 12 hours before using.

METHOD - GENOISE
In a double boiler, whip the egg whites and sugar during 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and continue whisking during 15 minutes until obtaining a light foamy texture, then set aside. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cacao powder and corn flour. Add it to the first mixture and stir until completely incorporated. Pour into a greased and floured mold and bake at 180°C for approximately 30 minutes.

METHOD - WHIPPED GANACHE
In a saucepan, boil the cream with the glucose. In a mixing bowl, melt the chocolate. Gradually pour the hot mixture over the melted chocolate in several additions, mixing well with a whisk or spatula before adding more liquid. Finish with an immersion blender to ensure a smooth texture. Scale the ganache and add an equal amount of cold cream to the mixture- use an immersion blender to combine. Pour into a shallow container and allow to crystallize overnight in the refrigerator. To use, whip by hand or on a stand mixer to achieve the desired consistency.
METHOD - ASSEMBLY
Use a decorating turntable and place the sweet cacao paste on it. Place a thin layer of genoise over, then add a 150g portion of whipped ganache. Add another layer of chocolate sponge cake and whipped ganache. Repeat again. Let it rest in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Finish with chocolate decorations.
