For cream, whisk the column 1/3, sugar, flour vanillin and egg yolks for 2-3 minutes.
Bring the rest of the milk to the boil, add it to the egg mixture and whisk, place the pan on the stove and stir it and let it thicken for 1-2 minutes and remove from the stove. Cool for 1-2 hours. It should cool
Whisk the previously softened butter in the mixer until it turns white. Add the milk jam and whisk until it gets a homogeneous consistency. Add 1 spoon of the first cold cream we made into it and beat them in the mixer
Rub the cream on each layer of the cake (except the top) and the edges. Apply lightly warmed apricot jam juice on the top layer and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Bring the cream to the boil for the top, remove from the heat and melt the chocolate in it. Cool for 10-15 minutes and tap on the cake. Cover the edges with almonds.
Melt the dark chocolate and put it in the cream squeezing bag and cut the tip very very finely. Start in the middle of the cake and draw circles outwards.
Divide the cake by drawing 8e from the inside out with a toothpick. Then divide by drawing 16 from outside to inside.
