- Soak the bottom layer of the sponge cake with ½ of the remaining sugar syrup.

- Spread the chocolate cream evenly on top and at the sides.
- Transfer onto a cake board and refrigerate for 20 minutes to set.
- Melt the remaining chocolate truffle and cool to room temperature, while stirring continuously.
- When cool but still saucy, pour over the cake and tap a little so it spreads evenly on top and at the sides.
- Refrigerate for another 20 minutes to set.
- Knead the gooey mixture till you get a smooth dough. Add some more chocolate crumbs if required.
- Make small pellets and press 5-6 with your thumb to make petals.
- Make a flower by attaching the petals around one another following the steps shown.
- Using a pairing knife, make a slit along one side of the remaining pellets so it gets the shape of coffee beans.
- Wipe the leaves with a dry cloth and put some melted chocolate on the back of the leaf with your fingers.
- Allow to set and then remove the leaf. Keep the chocolate leaves aside.
- To make the chocolate cigar, spread the melted chocolate in a thin layer on a clean formica / granite or marble surface using a palate knife.
- With a firm grip on a palate knife and employing a steady amount of pressure, slowly draw the knife in a straight line down the layer of chocolate.
- You can use your free hand to help form the chocolate into nice curls and keep aside.
- Place these cigars at the base of the cake.
- Place the chocolate rose and the leaves on top of the cake.
- Place the chocolate coffee beans along the side.
