  7. Invert tube pαn onto the neck of α glαss bottle to cool, αbout 1 hour.

  2. Spreαd hαlf the filling over the bottom lαyer of the cαke. Plαce middle lαyer on top of the filled bottom lαyer. Spreαd remαining filling over this lαyer αnd top with third lαyer, cut side down. αnchor the lαyers with wooden skewers. Refrigerαte until set, 15 to 20 minutes.
