    Hi chefs

    I am trying to reproduce a delicious pastry i have eaten from a pastry shop.

    While i found that they use a cookie flavored buttercream and a cocoa spongecake i am still stuck on how to make

    the chocolate layer. Actually its  chocolate cream (probably chocolate fudge icing) mixed with cookie crumbs.

    the dessert is built like that : sponge ,choco layer, buttercream, sponge ,choco layer, buttercream and a dollop of choco layer on the top 

    The major problem is that the moisture inside the creams i make  are not very soft while in refrigeretor and also moisten the cookie crumbs 

    Could anyone help me on how to make that cream and what kind of cookies should i use?It would be perfect for a lot of pastries :)

    (I actually use to make sponge cake baked with streusel which is a good estimate but not as good as that choco layer as far as crispiness is concerned)

    can you take a picture of that dessert ?  go back there and order it again.   It would be nice to see it so we can get an idea of what it is you are looking for..

    I will do as soon as i get again to that pastry shop. Its not very close to my home.

    Its either chocolate fudge icing or more likely butter(maybe margarine)-chocolate ganache 

    I am working on it. Thank you for your interest :)

    Unfortunately I dont have permissions to attach photos. However i think that in that chocolate layer there is a hint of hazelnut. Probably its a combination of chococolate ,oil and a nutella like paste so that it remains soft even in refrigerator. The biscuits inside are a kind of streusel au cacao. The only thing i have to do is to find the quantity of each ingredient.

    Any thoughts are welcome :)
