Dulce De Leche cocoa puff cream cake

Have been trying to clear some stock piling up in my cupboard, when i glance upon a packet of cocoa puff biscuit with 4 cans of nestle cream neatly pack in one corner. I suddenly remember that it was my to do list on Florence blog that i bought the ingredients, but i totally forgot about it. I quickly put my hand to work, it was a very easy dessert or cake suitable for all occasion with some adjustment only. The best part of all was no baking required, i gave half portion of the cake to my sister and her feedback was yummy! She thought this was a layer cheesecake. Sad to said i did not manage to taste it, coz it requires to chilled over night and i had my nerve remove on next day.

24 pieces of cocoa puff biscuits
510g Nestle cream (3 cans)
1 tsp vanilla essence
Some Dulce de leche (spread 1/2 tsp on each biscuit)

  1. Line the cake tin with aluminium foil or glad wrap.
  2. Mix cream with vanilla essence till well combined.
  3. Smear 4-5 tablespoons of cream on the bottom to secure the biscuits.
  4. Place one layer of biscuits on the cream. (I used 8 pcs)
  5. Top with 6 tablespoons of cream. Smooth and level the cream evenly.
  6. Spread 1/2 tsp of dulce de leche on each biscuits and place it face down on the cream.
  7. Repeat step 5 and step 6 till desired height. (About 4 layers)
  8. Smear the last layer with more cream, about 9-10 tablespoons or more.
  9. Lastly, sift some cocoa powder as deco.
Personal notes:
- Original called for 1 loaf W6.5 x L22.5 x H6cm). I just grap the only loaf tin, i have which is slightly bigger.
- I used nestle cream (pure dairy sterilised cream) weight 150g per can.
- Can change the deco to jello or chocolate ganache. (too lazy to do)
- Add dulce de leche, as i still have a can in the fridge. Will try to add cream cheese instead of nestle cream.
- Must chilled the cake overnight.
