Begin by levelling the cakes. Next, pipe rounds of the chocolate buttercream around the edge of the cake. Pour 1/3 of the chocolate ganache into the centre of the cake and cover with more buttercream. Repeat this process again with the next layer of cake. Finally invert the final layer and place on top. Drizzle the last 1/3 of the ganache around the edge of the top layer of cake and allow to run down the sides. Pipe more rounds of buttercream around the edge of the top layer of cake and fill the centre with more buttercream.
