Illusion Cake is an exquisite dessert that is worth making if you want to surprise your family with spectacular pastries. Its peculiarity is that the top and bottom layers are chocolate, and the middle is white. Therefore, it seems that it is a solid filling of cottage cheese. But in fact, there is a delicate cream and airy meringue.

The idea for the Illusion cake was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Galina with the nickname cooking_with_gala.
