This sumptuous cake besides its monumental also another important feature:

And, to think of it, it's not even difficult to prepare ... as long as all components are already prepared!

Yes, because being a cake assembled, it is necessary, before starting to pack it, that in addition to the cream diplomatic for the filling, having prepared the basics of puff pastry and the sponge cake...

And for the preparation of these, I refer to the individual recipes; I remember that I, personally, prefer to buy the pastry (lying or block) already prepared and only to apply and cooking.

Take the first base of puff pastry and is generously sprinkled with diplomatic cream with a spatula.

Place the sponge cake on the cream layer, pressing it hard with your hands to make it adhere well; then sprinkle it with cherry liqueur.

Now it covers with the remaining diplomatic cream (keep a small amount aside to touch up the edges at the end of) the sponge.

It is completed by covering the cake with the second puff pastry plan it lightly with a slight hand pressure.

You could add an additional layer of sponge cake (seen in the photos ...) to have a higher and more spectacular the cake, however, one must remember that this is fine just wanting to make quite large slices; small portions tend to be unstable ...

With the help of a spatula to distribute the remaining cream cake on the edge of the drawing of any irregularities.

abundantly sprinkle with powdered sugar and keep cool until ready to slice and serve.

This cake should be consumed preferably in the day, given the presence of cream in large quantities.
