My mother makes this any time she has to provide something for an afternoon tea – it guarantees her plenty of invitations! LOL.
So, once you have your Marsala and Nice biscuits gather some heavy whipping cream (& whip it!), apricot jam, grated chocolate and cooled super strong black coffee ….. then find a plate slightly bigger than the size you imagine your cake will be.
Continue dunking biscuits, spreading jam, whipped cream and grated chocolate until you are about 5 layers high.
Dunk the 6th (or top) layer of biscuits into the super strong black coffee and then spread with just whipped cream and chocolate (no jam).
When ready to serve surround with fresh fruit or fancy chocolate scrolls – I used fresh raspberries because they were on sale (and yes, I know I missed bits when I was spreading the cream – perhaps I was sampling the Marsala): –
