  1. Cut the cake in half lengthways to make two layers. Combine the coffee and brandy. Sprinkle enough of the coffee mixture over the bottom cake layer to moisten, but not soak it.
  2. Beat together the mascarpone and the icing sugar until fluffy. Spread half the cheese mixture over the bottom cake layer. Top with remaining cake and spread remaining cheese on top. Dust liberally with sifted cocoa. Keep in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.
