Distribute the preparation through the three trays and bake in the oven for 12 minutes. After that time, remove and sprinkle each tray with sugar.
Turn each tray over on a kitchen cloth and peel off the parchment paper. Let it cool down.

Chocolate cream:

Mix the butter with the cream and milk and bring to the boil, stirring until it boils. Add the chocolate, broken into pieces, and stir until a homogeneous cream is obtained. Let it cool down.

Sweep the cakes with the cream, with the chocolate cream.
Wrap one of them in the shape of a pie, wrap the second around it, forming a thicker pie and finally wrap the last one alone, forming a thinner pie. Cover the two pies obtained with the chocolate cream.
Place the thickest pie on a serving platter and cut the thinner in half. With the help of a little cream, put each half of the cut of the thinner pie, on both sides of the pie, forming a trunk. Roll a fork over the cream, along the trunks, forming veins of the bark.
Garnish to taste with motifs of your choice.
