No-Bake Chocolate Blueberry Cake

The top of the cake is a layer of blueberry jelly, which satisfies the desire for freshness with its sweet and sour taste… The base underneath is blueberries in a delicate and attractively colored cream, with a layer of rich cream from Edel Schokolade underneath. The cookie base of this cake resembles rum balls in flavor and texture. Not having to bake is very welcome on those muggy days. Another thing: use wild blueberries, you can also buy frozen ones, American ones will not reach them to taste.

3. Place the cake ring on the cake base and adjust to a diameter of 20 cm. Apply acetate film to the inside.

5. Chocolate cream: Heat 100 ml of sweet cream, icing sugar and chocolate over a steamer, mix until you get a homogeneous chocolate mass.

6. Whip the remaining 200ml sweet cream.

7. Cool the chocolate mixture slightly and add to the mascarpone, finally carefully stirring in the whipped cream with a spatula. Apply the cream to the bottom of the biscuit and put the resulting cake in the fridge to allow the cream to harden.

8. Blueberry Cream: Heat the blueberries and powdered sugar in the shrimp to completely soften the blueberries, then finely grind with an immersion blender.

9. Soak the gelatin sheets in cold water and wait until soaked. Squeeze them and toss in the shrimp with the blueberries. Heat and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin. Set the shrimp aside and allow the blueberry base to cool to room temperature, then mix with the mascarpone.
