Instructions

Ferrero Rocher Cake Layers
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two – 8 inch round pans with foil and spray with non-stick spray, or butter the sides.Sift 3 tbsp flour, 3 tbsp cocoa & 3 tsp baking powder. Stir in 2 cups ground nuts. Whip 7 eggs on high speed, until frothy, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the 1/2 cup sugar and continue whipping until tripled in volume, about 15 minutes. Carefully fold dry ingredients into the eggs in 3 additions. Divide the batter evenly between two – 8-inch pans and bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Once baked, leave in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely

Make the Frosting for the Ferrero Rocher Cake

Melt 2¼ cups of chocolate in the microwave, on low heat, in short intervals, stirring between each time. Bring to room temperature. Whip chocolate, 300 grams room temperature butter & 1/2 cup Nutella until thoroughly combined and fluffy.

Assemble the Ferrero Rocher Cake

Once the cake is cool, split each cake into 2 even layers.
Crush wafers by putting in a ziplock bag, then going over them with a rolling pin or something heavy.
Reserve ¾ cup frosting for decorating.
Place a small dab of frosting onto a serving platter.

Put the 1st cake layer on top and press to adhere.

Top with ¼ of the remaining frosting and spread around evenly. Sprinkle with ⅓ of the crushed wafers.

Repeat above 2 steps with the remaining cake layers.

Cover the cake sides with reserved frosting. Press the crushed wafers or chopped hazelnuts onto the sides of the cake. Pipe 8 stars on top of the cake. Place 1 Ferrero Rocher candy on top of each piped star.
