Bake it for 30 minutes at 190 degrees.
(FOR THE CREAM AND CAKE LAYERING)
Add in a bowl the whipping cream and whip with beater till reaching nice peak , now add the butter cream in the whipping cream and beat them together. Put some of the cream in a piping bag .
After the cakes are out of the oven let them rest for some time . Then try to cut them in equal sizes . Layer the first cake with sugar syrup and on top the cream and then the cherry pulp. put the next cake on top of it and repeat the process. After piling up the third cake later it with butter cream and scrap it to give a nice proper shape , then add on top the cooking chocolate flakes( you can find how to do that in the video) . Use the piping bag to decorate the cake and add the decorative cherries on top at the end.....
